The Cortland has tender, but crisp, snow-white flesh and is sweeter than its McIntosh parent, with only a hint of tartness. It is excellent for eating, salads, sauce, and desserts. It keeps its shape well when baked. A cross between McIntosh and Ben Davis, this variety was developed in 1898 at the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station. It ripens in mid to late September.
