     My response----------

      As grown here, this apple wasn't that great, nor did it have noticable
resistances to anything.
     Other names for it I believe are 'Paduckah' and 'Tulpohaukin' ( or something
     Here, it was very large, summer ripening (late July), medium red, with
mediocre quality.  Nice tree habit as I recall.

     Hope this helps.
