NY 75414-1 (10-2)
Weak growing cultivar that produces poor crotch angles. Early fruit drop and a large number of
mummies (approx. 1 per spur) were also factors in '99. This cultivar has not preformed well in NJ and
in the other trials nationally, and is not being recommended. (+)

Orin (10-30)
A low vigor cultivar that tends to overcrop itself. Develops blister spot on high sun portions of the
skin. Moderate fruit drop occurred in ' 99. (+1/2)

Pristine (8-7)
The earliest of the scab resistant cultivars. One of the best eating quality cultivars in its season but does
not store as is true with most summer apples. It is a weak wooded cultivar that is highly vigorous.
Fruit drop is an annual occurrence. (+++)

Sansa (9-3)
Sansa in the NE-183 trials was found to be infected with Tomato Ringspot Virus (TRSV). Sansa will
be dropped from further evaluations in this planting, but may be evaluated again when clean budwood
is available.

Shizuka (10-30)
Harbors moderate populations of leafminers. Good cultivar in many aspects, but contains no
outstanding qualities except for large size. (++1/2)

Suncrisp (NJ55) 10-24)
This NJAES favorite is an outstanding parentage including Cox Orange Pipen, Cortland and Golden
Delicious. It is a fall apple with extremely high eating quality. It has garnered outstanding reviews in
taste tests. The fruit tends to russet similar to Golden Delicious. It produces a very manageable and
highly precocious tree, but fruit load needs careful management. NJ growers should have this cultivar
on their farms. (+++1/2)

Sunrise (8-22)
Cultivar is another perennial front runner that produces attractive fruit of high quality annually in this
early time slot. (+++1/2)

It is our hope that future evaluations and observations such as the ones being conducted in this block
will reveal the next potentially profitable apple cultivars for the growers in New Jersey.

The second trial of the NE-183 project was planted in the spring of 1999. Twenty-seven plantings
consisting of twenty-four apple cultivars were established across North America with one again in
New Jersey at the Rutgers Snyder Farm.
