Pristine Apple


Pristine Apple

Summer. Co-op 32. (Co-op 10 x Camuzat) PRI Co-op, 1994.

Medium-large disease-resistant roundish-oblate clear-yellow fruit is mildly subacid, spicy and rich flavored. Sometimes with an orange blush. Resembles Yellow Transparent and Lodi but with better fresh-eating quality. It doesn’t ripen all at once—you can pick them over a week or more. Keeps more than a month in refrigeration.

The eleventh variety released by the well-known PRI disease-resistant apple-breeding cooperative program at Perdue, Rutgers and Illinois universities. The original seedling is a complex cross planted in 1975 at the Purdue Horticultural Research Farm in West Lafayette, IN. From there it was selected and tested as PRI 2946 and then Co-op 32. Has since been widely tested around the U.S. and across the world, recommended for both commercial and home orchards. Resistant to most apple diseases and scab immune. Blooms mid-late season. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
