Malus domestica 'Harrison'

Originating in Essex county, New Jersey, before the American Revolution, Harrison is yellow and elongated in shape, with rich, yellow flesh.

Traditionally, Harrison is mixed with Campfield and Granniwinkle to make the fabled "Newark cider", and is classified as a 'bittersweet'.

Hooray for Harrison!

It took a couple of weeks after planting for it to leaf-out, so be patient. It is growing beautifully and I can't wait to taste the fruit from this tree in a couple of years. Going to have to learn how to make cider!!!

Very well developed tree!

I was very happy to see that my dormant tree already has several branches, well worth the money. Thanks RainTree!
