This unique apple was discovered in York, Pennsylvania, in the 1800's. Yorks grow best in certain areas of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia.
The shape of a York makes it unique since it is a large apple, flat on the top with angled sides. The taste is sweet, with yellow, honeyed flesh that is quite dense and textured.
Yorks were popular with Virginia's early settlers because they kept all winter long in cool dirt cellars, just like a fine wine.
A month in storage after picking brings out the Yorks' unique flavors. While the York is a wonderful eating apple, it's one of the few apples to retain the shape of a slice when used in baking. This makes it a "must-have" for serious apple-pie bakers.
