This handsome medium-sized apple sports a dark purplish blush with light speckles. It is somewhat ribbed and some are conical. The flesh is a dense and creamy (slightly yellow) and gives a nice crunch.
Willams' Pride is sweet but not cloying, juicy, and rich, with notes of pear. Something about the flavor brings to my mind that of the Baldwin apple, though I am sure the differences would be very obvious were it possible to take a time machine to October to compare the two. (Update: Judge for yourself!)
Though not very acid or tart it has a nice astringent tail that persists after eating, more a sensation than a flavor.
I would guess that Williams' Pride would appeal to many different tastes, as it is mild without blandness and has an unusual character of its own.
