Haralson is an open-pollinated cross of Malinda (DNA testing suggests Wealthy was the other parent) that was released by the Minnesota Horticulture Research Center, 1922.
Haralson is a medium-large sized red apple. Late season. Crisp and juicy with a tart flavor. Good for eating, baking, and cider. Good for storing (4-5 months).
The tree is vigorous and tends toward biennial bearing. It is resistant to fireblight and cedar apple rust, susceptible to apple scab. Hardy to zone 3.
