The fruit

922-End is one of the only good tasting full size apples able to grow up to zone 1. It is tart but good tasting, and very juicy. While it is good to eat fresh, it is more of a processing apple; it makes excellent apple juice, apple sauce and apple pies. 922-End is a yellow apple with a red cheek and is ready to harvest by September 10th. At time of harvest, the apple is about 80% red. It does not store long. 922-End does best when grown in very cold climates. If grown in warmer climates (zone 5 or warmer), the fruit must be harvested half-ripe because it goes soft very rapidly.
