Stay me with flagons; comfort me with apples.
MONARK, from the University of Arkansas, is a great quality, early season dessert and culinary variety. Fruit is large, round-flat, near ful-red, with a superb texture and tart flavor. Ripens in July. One of the finest early pie apples. It requires multiple pickings or a stop-drop application. Tree is vigorous, very spreading and very hardy. Very precocious and productive.
