Medium-sized apple. A warm, yellow orange tint with sun-exposed sides waning to red (the Plumb Cider apple pictured here was redder than most). Pleasant, juicy flavor. Origen unknown. It was brought to Wisconsin from Ohio in 1844 by one Mr. Plumb, and it proved to be a good grower, hardy and productive. Few plum cider trees are still in existence today.
