Two New Black Spot Resistant Apples Available Nationwide This Winter!
Baujade - A new French Granny Smith-type apple, ripening late in the season. The fruit is medium sized, sweet and aromatic. Baujade is well suited the warmer parts of the country where traditionally apples have struggled with diseases brought on by warmth and humidity. Ideal for both organic orchardists and urban fruit growers who want an easily managed productive fruit tree.
Initial - Initial is another new disease resistant cultivar released from the apple breeding programme of INRA in France. Initial is an early maturing selection which combines a very nice attractiveness, an excellent eating quality at harvest time with a resistance to apple black spot. The red fruit has crisp flesh with high aroma, low acid and high sugar. It is an easy to grow tree and needs light pruning. Cropping is regular and good every year. Fruits are distributed uniformly throughout the tree.
