I'm interested in identifying those very few varieties of apple which have developed a reputation for coming largely true from seed. I know this is against all understanding about apples and cross-pollination. Never-the-less, there a a few apple varieties which have been identified as largely able to carry their characteristics over into seedlings, and that is what makes them interesting.

Dutchess of Oldenberg, Snow, and Nickajack are all I have found so far.

Please let me know if you have heard of others.

I think I've heard that Beautiful Arcade throws more or less uniform progeny.

I believe that Shiawassee does as well, but it's a Snow/Fameuse offspring. I'm trying to remember what other ones were listed as growing as "true to seed" in Tom Burford's book that i've been reading.

Presumably all these varieties are self-fertile to some degree.
