An excellent, scab-immune dessert apple.
Shinsei Apple Scionwood (Spring 2023)
A sweet, aromatic dessert apple from Japan.
This is a vigorous and productive tree, upright and spreading. Shinsei is moderately susceptible to fireblight, but it has no other known susceptibilities.
The fruit, ripening about a week after McIntosh, is medium-small, with a green-yellow skin blushed pink. The flesh is white, firm (more so than its parent Golden Delicious), fine grained, crisp, and juicy. Shinsei is exclusively a dessert apple, and it has the sweetness typical of Japanese cultivars, but its flavor is also delicate and aromatic.
Shinsei was developed at the Aomori Research Station in Japan, crossed in 1930 and named in 1948. The Aomori Station also produced Mutsu (Crispin) and Tsugaru.
