It could also be one of a kind apple. It looks like an old-ish tree. If it was grown from seed without grafting, it could be a variety that has yet to be named. Most apples before prohibition were for cider, and therefore didn't need to be specific varieties.
I can't see in the photo if it has a graft on the trunk.

Texture medium you say. Is it possible the apples are a touch past prime? I have an apple tree - well I have several - and with the one, I notice the apples are getting softer, flavor still great, and plenty still hanging on the tree, but a little softer. This might also be true of your find. Either way, I believe the flavor would be worth the lack of crispness.
I just took a look at the apple ID website. It looks like I'll have to get some apple vocabulary before I can ID my mystery apple.
Best luck: satisfaction
