Co-op 19

Summary: One of about 50 apple cultivars developed under the PRI (Purdue University, Rutgers University and the University of Illinois) programme using Malus floribunda 821 to develop apple varieties that are genetically resistant to scab.

Identification: Medium tending to large, round. The base colour is pale yellow, glossy. Washed pale red over half to most of the surface and marked with scattered stripes.

Characteristics: The flesh is pale yellowish, fine grained and crisp, becoming more tender at harvest. Very juicy, sweet, somewhat sprightly. Rich flavours.

Origins: A cross of NJ 57249 (Melba, Sonora, Red Rome and Melba) and PRI 854-100 (Beacon, Golden Delicious Rome Beauty and Malus floribunda 821). Developed by the Purdue, Rutgers and Illinois State Universities (U.S.A.) in the 1970s. Not considered for release.

Cultivation: Vigorous, upright with weeping branches. Bears fruit on tips.

Ploidism: Diploid. Self sterile.

Notes: Soft fruit texture, short storage life and tendency for the fruit to drop at harvest. This, in concert with a number of other problems has convinced PRI to discard the cultivar. Nevertheless the scion wood and budwood is available in from select nurseries and hobby orchardists.

8 weeks

Cold storage: Up to one month. Tends to soften after one month in storage.

Vulnerabilities: Immune to scab, highly resistant to cedar apple rust, resistant to powdery mildew and somewhat resistant to fire blight.

Harvest: In the last half of the third period. Fruit tends to drop when ripe.

Status: dessert
