Consider MonArk in the early-season category. Product of U.of Ark.
breeding program. Good disease resistance.
Ripe here in southern west-central KY in early to mid-July. Big
red-over-green apple with crisp subacid white flesh. Good for fresh
eating, excellent for cooking, drying.
Unlike many early varieties, will keep for 6 wks or more under
Requires repeated picking or stop-drop application... so, in my mind, great
for a home orchard, as they're not all ripe at the same time.
Charlotte, at Vintage Virginia Apples, had nothing but high praise for it
