Another Nova Scotia introduction, Novaspy is an all-around improvement on the old Northern Spy which was the standard cooking apple for winter use in bygone days. Its creamy, yellow flesh is quite juicy and crisp and the sweet/tart flavour has a hint of vanilla, but it is milder and less acidic than Northern Spy. Dark red stripes practically cover the greenish yellow background of this versatile apple, which is one of the best for storage. Novaspy ripens slightly earlier and is resistant to scab and fire blight.
