Find out here the different varieties of apples that we produce and sell.
It was obtained in New Zealand in 1939 through the crossing of Kidd’s Orange Red and Golden Delicious. It is medium to strongly vigorous, very productive, and it quickly enters into production, provided balance of the tree between vegetation and fruits is maintained; it is hardly sensitive to crop rotation.
Its production process is rather late in the original standard clones. Its productivity is middle to high, and it is slightly sensitive to falls. It blossoms towards the end of September or early October. It is auto-sterile and must be pollinated by other varieties such as Elstar, Gala, Fuji, Gloster 69, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonathan, Ozarkgold, etc.
In our valleys, the typical windy and cold springs frequently conspire against obtaining an adequate pollination, a problem which results in failure or lack of part of the seeds (the viability of which in some seasons is less than 40% in some fruits) and in the resulting lack of uniformity in the form of the apples which present one half more developed than the other.
It originated in New South Wales, Australia, from a plantation made by Thomas and Mary Ann Smith towards the middle of the XIX century. It is the third most marketed variety in the world, behind the Red Delicious and the Golden Delicious. In our country, it holds the second place in importance, behind the Red Delicious, with a share of nearly 20% of the total of the apples produced in the Northern Patagonian valleys.
This variety originated in USA where it was discovered towards the end of the XIX century. It is one of the most wide-spread varieties in all the apple production areas in the world where demand defines the greater or lesser importance given to its production. For this reason, it is frequently used as chronological benchmark for the blossoming and/or harvesting dates of the other varieties.
Native to the United States, it is a very vigorous self-sterile variety. Large fruits with a heart shape and very noticeable suture. Color of the epidermis light red and red pulp. In addition to its early maturation, its intense flavor and good size stand out.
