Similar to the Wealthy apple in taste but Freedom is very disease resistant making it ideal for organic production. It was a sister seedling to the better known Liberty apple...both from an American breeding program in the 70's before GMO technology was invented. Thus Freedom was bred and selected by traditional breeding and not genetic engineering. The Freedom apple is a large, red multipurpose apple with an aromatic old-fashioned apple taste. Delicious taste and disease resistance are its too greatest attributes. Stores well also
Liberty is the sister to Freedom but much darker red skinned apple .
