Antonovka is a popular medium-sized green/yellow cooking apple, ripening in the early-mid season. It originated in 19th century Russia, and was soon being grown in the northern USA on account of its excellent cold-hardiness.
There are several different forms of this variety. Antonovka Kamenichka is a red-flushed form of this variety, discovered in the Ukraine in the 1890s. Polutorafuntovaya is a green-skinned form, often with particularly large fruit size.
