Baldwin may have been the most popular apple in America at the turn of the century. It is medium to large, red and attractive, with coarse, crisp flesh. It is juicy, sometimes very juicy, and can be a good to very good fresh-eating apple. It stores extremely well, and is a desirable variety for pies. It was once widely planted throughout New England, Ontario and Michigan. Today it is rare.
