Title: Connell Red Apple
Author: APS
The Connell Red apple, a variety adapted to the severe climate of Minnesota and Wisconsin, was formally named in October 1957. It is believed to be a red sport of Fireside, according to W. H. Alderman (formerly with the University of Minnesota), and was first discovered in 1949 by Mr. William Connell, in his orchard at Menomonie, Wisconsin. Like Fireside, Connell Red is very hardy, productive, with fruit that is good in flavor and keeps well. But while Fireside is striped and splashed red over yellow, Connell Red is solid dark red in color. Trees may be obtained from Connell, Schneider, Connell, Inc., Box 89, Menomonie, Wisconsin.
