"Humanity will be renewed in the Orchard, and the Orchard will restore it."
OHIO NONPAREIL originated near Massillon, Stark County, Ohio, before 1850. This large dessert fruit is oblate in shape with a pale-yellow skin washed and striped pink and crimson. Sometimes it is nearly solid-crimson and has a red striped effect. The shape is sometimes lopsided. The creamy-white flesh is fine-grained and very juicy with a mild, aromatic, subacid flavor. It has a number of undesirable tree characteristics, particularly its slowness to begin bearing. It ripens in late August.
