Don't know whether it fits your needs, but I wouldn't be without MonArk - a
UofArk release; productive, fabulous fruit quality for an early season apple
- usually ripe early to mid-July here.  Big red-over-green round apple, with
firm, tart, white flesh.  Good for eating out of hand, excellent for
cooking, drying.  And, unlike most early apples, will hold under
refrigeration for 6-8 wks before going mealy.
Extended harvest - begins dropping well-sized, but poorly colored(still
tasty!) fruits well before the main crop; requires multiple pickings or, in
commercial settings,  stop-drop applications.  Seems to have good disease
resistance here.

I am going to cut down a cherry tree and will have room for one more apple
tree.  Anybody have suggestions for what might do well in hot southern
Indiana?  I prefer tart apples for sauce or cider.  Already have McIntosh,
Granny Smith, Yellow  Delicious, Elstar, Spitzenburg, Calvite, Gravenstein,
Duchess,& a couple of others I can't remember.  jerry in southern Indiana
