Erwin Bauer apple tree

Erwin Bauer is a fine-flavored eating apple, which was raised in the inter-war period. It is thought to be a seedling of Duchess of Oldenburg, possibly pollinated by Cox, but its hard dense flesh and late ripening time are not particularly reminscent of either of these varieties. However the flavor has some of the aromatic qualities associated with Cox.
