Seedless, Coreless, Bloomless Apple of 1906

Seedless Coreless Apple

I have never heard of such a thing until I was reading through my almanac of 1906 and saw an article entitled "A Seedless, Coreless, Bloomless Apple". Quite intrigued I read through the little article and have wondered why there are no seedless apples today? The article claims that John F. Spencer { of Grand Junction } was credited with the discovery of the seedless apple. He had become curious that if the orange could be seedless why not the apple too? Which in this case produced a bloomless variety which was said to aid in it being wormless & not being affected by the late frosts. So I have to ask, what happened to that seedless, coreless, bloomless apple of 1906?
