Fortune Apple Scionwood (Spring 2021)
A beautiful, large, mid-late season dessert apple. Also known as NY 429.
Originally tested as NY 429, Fortune is vigorous and very productive; it will tend to biennialism if allowed to crop heavily. It is susceptible to scab, mildew, and fireblight, but resistant to cedar-apple rust. Bitter pit is also an issue with this cultivar.
The fruit is large and attractive, a deep burgundy flushed over green. The fresh eating quality is high, with a sweet-tart, sprightly flavor that lingers with tropical and citrus notes. It stores well–for up to five months–and is a great pie and sauce apple. NYSAES notes that it has the processing qualities of a Spy.
Fortune is a cross of Empire and Schoharie Spy, developed by Roger Way at Cornell and released in 1995..
