Marialena Apple on G.11 (Spring 2021)


A traditional sharp cider apple from Asturias, Spain. Also known as Maria Elena.

Marialena is a very vigorous, precocious, and productive tree. It is resistant to scab and mildew. Ripening time is early October in upstate NY, and the tree has a tendency to biennialism. This apple is used exclusively for cider production; it is not suitable for fresh eating.

This is an Asturian cider (sidra) apple, approved by The Regulatory Council of Origin Cider of Asturias. The fruit is a medium-sized, dark-red apple that is somewhat angular. It yields a high-acid juice and the juice is very plentiful.

Spanish cider apples have not yet been widely tested in the United States, but the native climate of these apples should be taken into consideration. Asturias enjoys abundant year-round rainfall, mild summers, and temperate winters. Costal winter temperatures are typically in the 50s and summer temperatures are in the 70s.
