My Grandfather planted many of these trees in his orchard in 1936. Unfortunately when the orchard was renovated in 1976
none were replanted in favor of more commercial varieties. We do have some 150 year old trees in Hazelton Orchards. Not a pretty apple but when allowed to mature it is very tasty.

Adam's Apples believes "The flesh is firm, crisp, medium coarse, and light yellow. Baldwin is juicy with a rich, even taste, balanced sweet and tart enlivened by acidity. Older Baldwins are quite palatable too, though mellower, not acid, and less crisp. Cider, trace of pear, and some spice make this worth seeking out in October or later. Some pleasant astringency after the finish."
