Hauer Pippin Apple
During its heyday, this spicy and sweet-tasting, versatile apple was planted throughout Santa Cruz County, California and earned the nickname "Christmas Apple" because it ripened in late November and its flavor improved after a few weeks in storage. Though popular with orchardists and consumers, it lost its competitive advantage to earlier-maturing varieties when apple storage technology improved. By 2001 there were only three commercial nurseries selling it. Today, with the help of the Slow Food USA chapter in Monterey Bay, farmers are starting to plant the trees again in Santa Cruz County and the apple is making a comeback.
