Minnesota 1734 apple

Asked September 15, 2016, 11:43 AM EDT

Hello, I am looking for information on the Minnesota 1734 apple that the university bred. There is little information on it online and does not seem to be widely grown. I am interested in it due to it being one of the few hardy (I live in zone 2b, Saskatchewan) russet apples that I have come across. I am also particularly interested in it due to reading that it is good for cider (I am interested in hard cider particularly). Any info on it's characteristics, growth etc., and pictures if you have them, would be very appreciated. Many thanks.
