Abstract: The new variety is a Jonagold mutation having red skin color development early in the growing season.
Claim: I claim:

1. A new and distinct variety of Apple Tree cv. Daliguy and the parts thereof, substantially as shown and described herein.
Description: This invention relates to a new variety of Apple Tree cv. Daliguy, the fruit of which develops a red skin color very early in the growing season.

The new apple tree variety is a sport (mutation) of the variety Jonagold. The mutation of the parent Jonagold plant was induced by two irradiations with cobalt gamma rays. The new variety thus obtained has been shown to display homogeneous andstable characteristics in successive asexual propagation.

Daliguy differs from its parent Jonagold in that the natural intense red coloration of half the fruit surface is present under conditions in which Jonagold has no such color. The color of Jonagold is characterized as "[g]round color fairlybright yellow with some green tinges. One-third to one-half flushed and motted bright red. Short, broad, broken stripes." Bultitude, J. (1983) Apples: A Guide to the Identification of International Varieties, University of Washington Press, Seattle. In addition, the red distinctive coloration of fruit of Daliguy begins very early in the season, i.e. beginning in June and July.

The accompanying drawings illustrates the new variety in color as grown in Lesigne, France, and shows the fruitthereof (FIGS. 1 and 2) and growth habit of the tree (FIG. 3).

The descriptive matter which follows pertains to apple trees grown in Lesigne, France, and is believed to apply to similar conditions of soil and climate elsewhere.

The following specification of the Daliguy variety utilizes the format of the Technical Questionnaire of TG/14/1-Annex 3 of the Guidelines For the Conduct of Tests for Distinctness, Homogeneity and Stability for the Apple (Malus Mill.), publishedby the International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants (UPOV). The explanation of characteristics and terminology used in the technical questionnaire of the aforesaid document are incorporated herein by reference.

______________________________________ CHARACTERISTICS OF APPLE TREE CV. DALIGUY ______________________________________ 1. Time of Flowering Early, like Jonagold 2. Fruit: Size (after commercial Medium, like Jonagold grading of all fruits;average breadth of the greatest proportion) 3. Fruit: general form Long-conical, similar to Jonagold 4. Fruit: Type of overcolor of Red, like Jonathan skin (fully mature fruit) 5. Fruit: form of overcolor of Solid, like Richared skin 6. Timeof maturity for picking Early, like Jonagold, between Tydeman early Morcester and Reine des Reinettes. ______________________________________

The new variety has good resistance to pests and diseases.
