Liberty Apple(Dwarf) An excellent quality apple highly resistant to major apple diseases such as scab, fire blight, mildew and cedar-apple rust. Medium-size fruits are heavily red-striped and have light yellow flesh that's crisp and juicy with sprightly flavor. Good for fresh eating as well as cooking. Keeps into February, the flavor intensifying in storage. Vigorous spreading trees are heavily spurred resulting in huge crops. Bears annually. Ripens mid-to-late September.
