California Crown variety?

Post by OrangePippin-Scott »

I received this email asking about an old variety called California Crown. Anybody heard of this one?


I am the gardener at a museum in NSW, Australia and the apple tree was planted between 1886 - 1900.

I have been told the apple tree was a "California Crown" but I cannot find any information about this variety or whether it ever existed.

If you have any information it would greatly appreciated

Apparently it was never submitted to the collection in Geneva.

Maybe not all that popular of an apple? That is my guess.
