The Cortland Apple is a frost hardy tree, requiring 800-1,000 chill hours. The apples have a very sweet flavor with excellent flavor right off the tree. The Cortland Apple was part of a cross breeding project in the early 1900s to combine resistance to cold with the taste of a McIntosh. They require a cross pollinator such as a Fuji, Gala, Honeycrisp, Jonathan, Pink Lady or Red Delicious to be planted nearby.
