Owner's comments

This is a cultivar from the Purdue breeding program, developed as a scab-resistant variety. It is. The summer of 2006 with a terrible wet summer; despite this the fruit was absolutely free of scab. In addition it is an excellent juicy crisp apple with a strong apple flavour which lingers on the tongue. Highly recommended.
