 What’s great about the Cortland Apple Tree?

- Cortland, with its outstanding flavor, has remained one of the most popular apples in the United States for over 100 years! It’s an absolute regional favorite in the Northeastern United States where it was developed in New York at Cornell University.

- Cortland is one of the slowest apples to brown after being sliced! This characteristic is quite unique and means that when you slice Cortland apples in the morning for lunch later, those slices will retain their flavor better than other comparable apples!

- Their crisp and sweettart flavor combined with their cold tolerance makes them hugely attractive for Midwestern and Northeastern climates.

- Cortland apples taste their best when freshly picked off the tree. Fresh eating is certainly their most popular use, although a fair share of Cortland pies are certainly baked and enjoyed every year!
