Image Number 3 for United States Patent #PP7590.
A new and distinct variety of apple tree is provided which forms quality fruit having an attractive substantially uniform red coloration. The new variety originated in the Federal Republic of Germany as a mutation of the Jonagold variety. The fruit of the new variety can be distinguished from that of its mother variety by the exhibition of a more intense red coloration which covers a greater portion of the fruit surface in the substantial absence of striping. Also, the new variety forms fruit which colors approximately one week earlier than its parent. Such improved fruit coloring propensity is deemed to be of substantial commercial importance.
