Shell Apple – Heirloom Apple from the South Alabama Area!
Originating in Alabama, Shell apple was developed by Mr. Green Shell (born 1841). Mr. Shell had an apple orchard in Escambia County, shipping boxcars of crisp, somewhat tart, green apples north in July. Rediscovered and propagated recently by Dan Miller. Shell apple does not need cross pollination. Great choice for an organic grower. Self-fertile. Estimated 600-650 chill hours.
