The Cortland is a very crisp apple with white flesh that is descended from the Mcintosh. The Cortland has a delicious sweet flavor, making it an excellent dessert apple. They are crimson with dark red stripes, pale yellow background and speckled with little greenish white dots like stars. Cortlands developed at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station in 1898 and were named after nearby Cortland County, New York. They ripen in September and are a medium to large sized apple.
