The Westland apple, originating in Brooks, Alberta, Canada, is a product of crossbreeding Heyer 12 and Dr. Bill apples. It was developed at the Alberta Special Crops and Horticultural Research Centre and introduced in 1979​. Known for its hardiness in cold climates, it is particularly suitable for prairie and northern regions, thriving in very cold temperatures (extremely hardy to -50°F or colder)​.

This apple is large, typically up to 3 inches (7.5 cm) wide, with pale yellowish-green skin flushed with pale red. The flesh is juicy and off-white, with a tart taste, making it ideal for pies, sauce, and juice​. However, the flesh can become mushy if the apples are allowed to fully mature on the tree​.

The Westland apple tree exhibits weak vigor but is very hardy. It has a drooping growth habit with somewhat weak branches, and it produces reliable and heavy crops. This variety is somewhat susceptible to fireblight and prefers full sun exposure, with a preference for sandy loam, loam, or clay loam soils. It's quite adaptable to different soil conditions but should be planted in areas that don't experience prolonged flooding in spring​.
