My first guess would be Gravenstein, but Bernie would have to tell us if
Gravenstein can withstand Alberta winters.

 I am looking for suggestions on the possible identity of an apple cultivar
growing on an old farmstead (built in 1910) in Alberta, Canada. The tree was
probably planted about the time the house was built. The fruit diameter is 3
inches on average and the height is 2 inches. The skin is golden yellow with a
reddish streaked overcolour.
