Cortland apples are grown primarily in Ohio, New York, and the northwest US.

The Cortland is a cross between the McIntosh apple and the Ben Davis apple. It's tart, but not too tart to eat. Makes an excellent cooking apple, as it stays firm. The Cortland is a frequent choice for kabobs, fruit cups, and salads   (apparently some people put apples in salad, I swear it's true)   - because they don't turn brown after being cut.

This apple is generally available September - October.

Cortland, New York's baseball team is called the Cortland Apples. Ha, ha.
