Williams Pride
Williams Pride
Williams Pride Apple Summer. Co-op 23 [PRI 2845-1=(PRI 1018-101 x NJ50)] PRI Co-op, 1988.

Probably the most popular summer apple among the newly developed disease-resistant introductions. Like Redfree, another PRI intro, it’s actually crisp, which is rare for a summer apple.

Deep purple roundish-conic irregularly shaped fruit highlighted with areas of glowing rosy red and covered with a thin bloom. Light cream-colored flesh with red staining just under the skin. Firm, crisp and very juicy. Has a nice acidic blend of tart and sweet, reminiscent of Fameuse.

Long ripening period means you don’t have to eat them all at once. Vigorous annually bearing tree with some biennial tendency. Well-shaped with strong right-angled branches that do not require careful training.

Highly resistant to fireblight, cedar apple rust and sooty blotch; resistant to powdery mildew. Scab immune. Blooms early to midseason. Z4-7. Both Maine Grown. (3-6' trees)

Additional Information

Apples

All apple trees require a second variety for pollination, but any apple or crabapple blooming at the same time, within a quarter mile, will probably do.

Planting distance depends on the rootstock:
Plant standard trees (A) 25-30' apart.
Plant Bud 118 (B) rootstocks 20-25' apart.
Plant M111 (C) rootstocks 15-20' apart.
Plant Bud 9 (D) rootstocks 5-10' apart.

Each apple variety has a climate range where it will thrive and produce its best fruit. At the end of each apple description we list a range of zones. For example, Z3-4 signifies that this apple will reach perfection in Zones 3 and 4 and that we don’t recommend it farther south even though it would be plenty hardy. Z4-6 means that this apple will reach perfection in Zones 4, 5 or 6. Although we have received reports from southern areas that some of our rarest Maine apples are thriving, we suggest you use this guide to select apples most appropriate to your area.

Varieties bearing annually are noted; others normally bear every other year. With diligent annual pruning and thinning, most apples will produce an annual crop, one heavy, the next light.
