Chieftain Apple Tree

This cold-hardy, red apple was bred in 1917 by Iowa State horticulturist, Spencer Beach. It is a cross between the classic cooking apple, 'Jonathan', and the popular eating apple, 'Red Delicious.' Many report it tastes better than both its parents. It has lovely red skin and very crunchy, sweet and spicy flesh. 'Chieftain' produces later in the season and many be cross-pollinated with its parent varieties or others that bloom at the same time.
