SPENCER is a cross of McIntosh and Golden Delicious from the Summerland, British Columbia, Experimental Station in 1926. Tall, round to conical in shape, it is medium to large in size, with a yellow background flushed and streaked carmine or an orange-red. The creamy-white flesh is soft and very sweet. The tree is spreading and fairly vigorous and is slow to begin bearing, but then bears full crops annually. This dessert apple ripens in September.
