- The Cortland strikes a perfect balance between tangy and sweet. We think of it as a late-season version of the tried-and-true McIntosh only crisper and with more flavor. The skin that protects it from early frosts is a little tough, so we like to eat it peeled. It is perfect for pies because it doesn't brown when you slice it the color stays nice and creamy.
Please note: Our apples ship in protective packaging to ensure they arrive in top condition.
