Description

An early apple with snap. Grower-friendly trees ripen a full 40 days before Red Delicious, are moderately vigorous and very hardy. Large, round, somewhat flattened fruit is shiny red-red with a pleasantly tart, crisp, firm flesh, unlike many early-ripening varieties. Won’t brown when cut. Resistance to fire blight and mildew is similar to McIntosh. Stores up to 3 months — far longer than other early comers — and keeps its desirable crisp quality. Ripens in early August. Best pollinators: Cortland, Stark® BraeStar™ or Stark® Lodi. May be covered by USPP #16,620 or other patents. ‘PV-1027’ cultivar.

Planted Jul 2018 in Virginia. Doing well in spite of some deer nibbling. Good new growth going on right now.
