NovaSpy Apple

Malus domestica 'NovaSpy'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

Granpa's Nature Friendly™ NovaSpy is a good scab resistant alternative to Northern Spy, which it resembles. The fruit is medium size with some stripy, dark red blush. The flesh is creamy yellow, fine textured and very firm and crisp. It is moderately juicy, slightly acidic and has very good flavor. Excellent for fresh eating or pies, like Spy is. Ripens after Red Delicious and before regular Northern Spy. It stores and holds well

NovaSpy was introduced from the research station in Nova Scotia, Canada where it was a mixed progeny with Nova EasyGro, Red Spy, and Golden Delicious.
