Malus domestica 'Pristine®'
- » Pristine® is one of the easiest early apples to grow in the garden.
Grandpa's Nature Friendly™ Pristine® is one of the best early disease resistant varieties for the garden. It is a very early ripening yellow apple that resembles Yellow Transparent in appearance, but is much firmer, less acid, and better eating. The fruit is yellow, very smooth, and attractive. It keeps well on and off the tree for several weeks. The fruit is tasty and quite firm and crisp for being so early. It ripens early in August, just after Lodi.
Pristine® is another of the famous disease resitant varieties to come out of the "Co-op" program. It was introduced as Co-op 32 in 1994 by Purdue.
