  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

  • »  Jonafreeā„¢ Apple is very similar to regular Jonathan, but has much more disease resistance.

Grandpa's Nature Friendly™ Jonafree is one of the scab immune varieties, that is most like it namesake, with which it ripens. Jonafree is nearly identical to old-time red Jonathan in eating quality, flavor, and appearance. It is slightly less acidic though. It is a bright red apple, with glossy skin and generally no russeting. It does not develop "Jonathan" spot when stored, like normal Jonathan does. Can be used as an all purpose apple.

Jonafree was tested as Co-op 22 when selected as a seedling at the Agricultural Experiment Station in Urbana, Illinois. It has a complex ancestry.
