Jonathan Dwarfing

Jonathan is a handsome round apple with a rosy red cheek on the sunny side, with sweet crisp, juicy but firm flesh. Originally from America in the 1820's as a seedling of Espous Spitzenburg, Jonathan is the parent of Jonagold, and many other significant apples like Jonagold, Ida Red, Akané, Bonza. Grown commercially for many years. The flavour has enough acid to be refreshing and worthy of praise.
