Summary: One of some 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 size, round to short conic. The base colour is pale yellow, over with is a deep red wash covering most to almost all of the surface. The stem is short and medium long, set in a narrow and somewhat shallow cavity. The calyx is large and open, set in a wide and rather shallow basin.

Characteristics: The flesh is cream coloured, fine grained, firm and crisp. Juicy, sprightly and somewhat spicy.

Uses: Dessert

Origins: A cross of NJ 125355 (Red Melba, Gallia Beauty and Mavia genetics) and Prima (PRI's Co-op 2)

Cultivation: Moderately vigorous, small and upright spreading. Branches are limber. Semi spur bearer. Produces moderate, annual crops

Ploidism: Diploid. Self sterile.

Notes: The breakdown of flavours in cold storage and the size of the apples, coupled 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: Keeps for less than two months in cold storage. The texture will hold for up to six, but the flavours start to break down long before that.

Harvest: Ready for harvest late in the fourth period or early in the fifth. The fruit tends to hang well through the harvest but will fall soon after ripening.

Harvest period: 4

Type(s): Dessert
