Holiday

Flavor: Crispy and somewhat tart

Approximate Ripening: Late September

Uses: Almost anything, particularly eating and hard cider

Trivia: Made in Ohio!  Holiday was developed by the Ohio Agriculture Experiment Station in 1940 and came to market in 1964.  It’s a cross between Macoun and Jonathan.

Notes: If you like Jonathan’s flavor but long for something crisper, give Holiday a try.  Holiday bursts with Jonathan tartness, and it has that snap you’re looking for.
