Lemon yellow apple with moderate blush glows in the summer sun-and tastes delicious in apple pie and other desserts. Named Pristine because of its attractive, golden skin, this apple has a sweet-tart flavor and excellent crisp texture. It's the perfect apple for creating desserts, including the classic apple pie. This early apple ripens in July, weeks before many other varieties-and its excellent storage quality means it maintains it texture for up to six weeks in refrigerated storage. Pristine exhibits good disease resistance, so you'll enjoy lots of attractive, tasty apples. While not necessary, for optimum harvest you may choose to pollinate with Goldrush, McIntosh, Gala, Enterprise, Pixie Crunch or most crabapples. SD 2-3' bareroot. Malus domestica 'Pristine' PP9881

  • pruningPrune in late winter/early spring, while trees are still dormant. There are normally two goals when pruning an apple tree: 1. Initially, on young trees, to encourage a strong, solid framework. 2. On mature trees to maintain shape, maximize sun exposure and encourage fruit production. You will also want to remove any suckers coming from the rootstock. Unwanted shoots and suckers can be removed at any time. Also remove any crossed, crowded or inward-growing limbs in late winter or very early spring.
