BEST ANSWER: According to the University of MInnesota, its parents are Sharon and Connell Red.
is this a GMO apple? I wonder because it resists oxidation for a long period of time.

BEST ANSWER: Stark Bro???s does not knowingly grow or offer genetically engineered plants or trees. Almost all of our trees are hand-grafted onto superior rootstock, which is what gives them their desirable qualities (keeping ability, tree height, disease-resistance, browning resistance, etc.).
