Pristine Apple


Pristine Apple

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

Disease-resistant medium-large 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 dessert quality for good tart fresh eating. Tasty in summer salads and also a fine cooking apple. A good choice for backyard growers because the fruit 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. Has since been widely tested around the U.S. and across the world. Recommended for commercial orchards and hobbyists alike. Resistant to most apple diseases and scab immune; the name refers to its unblemished skin.

Blooms mid-late season. Zone 4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
