Pitmaston Pineapple is a small, juicy apple that is good for both fresh eating and cider-making. It is golden yellow, russeted, and round or slightly conical in shape. Its flavor is sweet, with a slight pineapple taste that gives it its name. It is ready for harvest in mid-late September and stores fairly well.
