(PRI 2050-4 = 'Golden Delicious' x PRI 1050-201 (1050NJ1)) (Korban et al. 1990)

Brief Description

  • Fruit: 70 to 76 mm or more (2-3/4 to 3+ in.); round to short-conic; moderate to bright finish; occasional mottled, pink to orange blush, 100% pale yellow, attractive; moderate stem-end russet, occasionally conspicuous, russeted lenticels; medium to coarse grained, cream colored, very firm, very crisp and breaking flesh; moderately to sprightly sub-acid, mellowing in refrigerated storage; spicy, full, rich flavor; juicy. Very good quality. Retains flesh texture and quality for five months or more in refrigerated storage. Fruit hangs on the tree until over ripe. Moderate to heavy cropping. Winter, storage apple.
  • Season of Maturity: Two and one-half weeks after 'Delicious'.
  • Tree: Moderate to high vigor, slightly upright, branches with lengths of bare-wood at their bases; some slight tendency for fruit to be borne in clusters; slight biennial tendency.
  • Disease Resistance: Field immune to apple scab; moderately resistant to powdery mildew; highly resistant to cedar-apple rust; highly resistant to fire blight.
  • Problems: Some tendency for fruit to be borne in clusters; leggy, bare-wooded branches may make training somewhat difficult; stem end russet and mottled blush detract from appearance.
  • General Recommendation: Strongly suggested for advanced testing.
