A great early apple

I live in Eastern Washington at the base of the Huckleberry Mountains and this apple has been wonderful. It seems to survive everything the climate up here throws at it and still have a respectable harvest. I use it for fresh eating, applesauce and apple chips . If you hate using chemicals like I do get this apple. I have never had to spray it and have had very few bug issues, just a little hole every now and then. A reminder: the birds love them because they are the first apple to ripen. I always have half a dozen or so that end up in the compost pile!
