The Prairie Spy was originally developed in Excelsior, Minnesota (my home state) in the 1940s. It bears fruit fairly late in the fall (late September or early October) and its flavor is delicious-good for cooking, baking or eating out of hand! This variety is very popular here in Minnesota and many nurseries carry them. Even if some are sold out for the 2006 season, the U of M should be able to give you a long list of Minnesota nurseries more than happy to ship you a tree this spring.

Oh my gosh!!! Thank you so very much for the info. I've sent them an email and told them I'll be calling tomorrow. I didn't think I'd ever get these trees. Both of my parents have passed away and I wanted to plant these trees for them.
God Bless You.
I put in the name of your tree in Google and came up w/ lots of choices. Here is one site I saw your tree http://www.maes.umn.edu/MNHardy/components/apples.asp
