It was my single personal favorite amongst various russet types and
you've described its flavor perfectly. In many years we had various degrees
of cracking early in the season which later appeared to be "healed
sutures". In years when they didn't crack they were simply beautiful in
their uniformity. Also it has one of the healthiest foliages I've ever seen
on an apple, although I doubt that it is genetically disease resistant (had
a regular pesticide program).
Duane Green (at UMass) did an extensive trial on this one back in the
early 90s for roadside marketing and I think he recently published something
on that trial.
