Prima Apple ScionwoodThis is a twig for grafting. Fall. Coop 2 [PRI 1225-100 (PRI 14-510 x NJ 123249)]. PRI Coop, 1970. One of the first disease-resistant varieties to hit the market and now one of the tried and true. Although other catalogs have dropped Prima in favor of newer “designer” varieties, we still think very highly of it. Medium-large roundish fruit has rich yellow skin with a striking orange-red blush. Resembles Jonathan which is buried somewhere in its convoluted parentage. Mildly subacid juicy white flesh provides excellent eating and makes good cider. Keeps a couple of months. Open spreading tree bears annually if kept thinned. Proving to be hardier than anyone thought. Scab immune; resistant to fireblight, cedar apple rust and mildew. Bears annually. Blooms early. Z4-6.
