Ripening in mid-October,  this apple has the distinction of being Don Higgins’ favorite eating apple, as far as taste goes. Steady Eddie is a consistent producer of apples, and caught our eye early in field trials for dependable crop loads, as well as excellent for eating. Though not a high coloring apple, Steady Eddie brings the “X” factor our breeding team could not be more excited about… Eddie. Blooms. Late! Giving you the edge when there is a late frost in spring. To have an apple with proven high disease resistance, along with proven DNA Markers of a late bloom date, makes Steady Eddie an extremely valuable part of your apple portfolio!
