Pumpkin Sweet (Pound Sweet)

Sheep's Nose


This antique variety may not be a particularly good fresh-eating apple, but it purees into a tasty, smooth sauce. It is a handsome, dark-colored apple, tall and ribbed, and, as its name implies, it has a crown like a sheep's nose. This is a long-storing apple that ripens September to October.


First discovered in Connecticut in the 1700s, it is also known as the Black Gilliflower.
