Williams Pride Apple


Williams Pride Apple

Malus spp. Summer. Co-op 23 [PRI 2845-1=(PRI 1018-101 x NJ50)] PRI Co-op, 1988.

Probably the most popular summer apple among PRI’s newly developed disease-resistant introductions. It’s actually crisp, which is rare for a summer apple.

Deep purple roundish-conic irregularly shaped fruit highlighted with areas of glowing rosy red and covered with a thin bloom. Light cream-colored flesh with red staining just under the skin. Firm, crisp and very juicy. Has a nice acidic blend of tart and sweet, reminiscent of Fameuse.

Long ripening period means you don’t have to eat them all at once. Vigorous annually bearing tree with some biennial tendency. Well shaped with strong right-angled branches that do not require careful training. Highly resistant to fireblight, cedar apple rust and sooty blotch; resistant to powdery mildew. Scab immune. Blooms early to midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
