Apple : FLORINA (X-2775) Semi-Dwarf (G969)


191 in stock

A scab, mildew and fireblight resistant variety developed at INRA Angers in France and also marketed as 'Querina™'. It's pedigree includes Golden Delicious and Jonathan, among others. Large, attractive, bright red apple is very crisp and firm with an aromatic, spicy, complex flavour. This is one that is pleasurable for fresh eating straight from the tree and will still be perfectly palatable 3 months later. A great all-around variety, especially for organic production. Florina is easy-to-grow, but as a tip bearing type, it does not lend itself to espalier pruning.

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
