Early season apple with a level of tartness to it. It has a pear type of flavor. Medium density flesh and a crispy citrus bite. Its different for an early season variety but just average in terms of flavor.

We have two Pristine trees and they are marvelous. They are the first tree to ripen, which is late July here in Alexander Valley.

Beautiful lemon-yellow apple with a perfect finish. This high quality apple is very productive and is a good keeper for an early apple.
