Origin probably in the French settlements on the St. Lawrence River from seed brought from France between 1600 and 1650. It was first propagated largely from seeds, and although it reproduces itself in this manner quite closely, many have proven sufficiently distinct to be propagated under separate names. The apples of the Fameuse type are discussed by Prof. F. A. Waugh in Vermont Experiment Station Bul. No. 83. Tree moderately vigorous, spreading, round-topped, an early bearer, very productive in alternate years.
Fruit medium, roundish, slightly flattened; surface pale, waxen yellow, almost or wholly covered with fine deep solid red, on shaded side and on specimens protected from the sun the coloring consists of stripes and splashes; dots minute, obscure; cavity narrow, wavy, acute, green; stem short, medium, slender; basin shallow, rather narrow, smooth; calyx small, closed; segments short divergent. Core small, closed, barely clasping; cells ovate, entire; tube funnel-shaped; stamens marginal; seeds long, pointed; flesh snow-white, often stained with red, very tender, juicy, fine-grained, perfumed, mild subacid. Very good. October, December.
