Early Joe

Sweet & Tart
Discovered Early 1840s East Bloomfield, New York
Harvest Early Season

Early Joe is a small, early season apple with red stripes. It has excellent flavor, but much of its fruit is misshapen or too small.


Like Northern Spy, Early Joe originated in the Salisbury, Connecticut, orchard of Heman Chapin. He eventually released them commercially in East Bloomfield, New York.
