Creston (BC8M15-10) (10-13)
Develops a rough finish similar to Honeycrisp, but lacks suitable red color. Cork and bitter pit have
occurred annually. Tree growth is weak with poor lateral branching. Appears to be susceptible to
Spotted Tentiform Leafminers. This cultivar may have limited potential under our climatic conditions

Cameo (10-24)
This cultivar is a perennial front runner. A chance seedling from Washington State, it resembles the
original red delicious with exceptional flavor. Tree vigor can be excessive without proper nitrogen
management. (+++1/2)

Enterprise (10-24)
One of the most disease resistant cultivars we have with resistance to scab, fireblight, and mildew and
cedar apple rust. The fruit is annually large and of high quality, especially after one month in storage.
Tree vigor is high. This cultivar is susceptible to calcium deficiencies that can manifest in a spotting on
skin, coined "Mystery Spot"; Regular calcium nutrition management is a must. (+++)

Fuji (RedSport #2) (10-29)
A high quality fruit with a tree that is very vigorous under our conditions. Without careful nitrogen
management red fruit color may be off in this cultivar. (+++1/2)

Gala Supreme (10-19)
This cultivar is not a true Gala and does not have the fruit or tree characteristics found in most Gala
strains. The tree is moderately vigorous. It has not been precocious. This was the first year a
measurable yield was harvested. Fruit finish was russeted and quality was subpar. (+)

Gingergold (8-22)
An early golden type with large fruit size very high fruit quality. It has performed well annually and is
the best golden type in this season. The tree is highly vigorous. Nitrogen needs to be properly
managed. This cultivar is extremely sensitive to powdery mildew and fireblight. Heavy cork spotting
has been observed annually. (+++1/2)

Golden Supreme (9-15)
Fruit quality was outstanding in '99, the first year a measurable harvest was produced. It is a golden
type that can mature up to three weeks before Golden Delicious. The tree is highly vigorous and lacks
precocity. (+++)

Goldrush (11-5)
Scab resistant, the fruit quality is excellent when mature. It is an extremely precocious cultivar that
overcrops itself. It is extremely difficult to thin with bi-annual tendencies. This cultivar matures too late
to be recommended for our region. In some years it does not mature. 1998 was the 1
stseason we were
able to harvest a mature crop, we were unable to in '99. (+1/2)

Honeycrisp (9-17)
Difficult tree to manage and produces an unattractive fruit finish. Severe drop occurred in '99. Mite,
powdery mildew problems, and cork is an annual occurrence. This fruit can sell itself with its
outstanding eating quality. (++1/2)

Fortune (NY 429) (10-2)
Attractive, large fruit that possesses mild corking. Early drop and a large number of mummies
(approx. 3 per spur) were observed in 1999. Fruit possesses many of the qualities we are used to from
NYAES selections (soft flesh, heavy drop, and poor color) but fruit is large and stores well. May find
a niche in processing markets. (++)
