Haralson is a cross between Wealthy (also grown on our orchard) and Malinda apple varieties. It was developed by the University of Minnesota and introduced in 1913. It is a grandparent of Honeycrisp.
It is firm and juicy (similar texture to Honeycrisp) with a tart flavor. It bakes well and is a top choice for cider pressing. It also stores well.
