Apple Spartan

Apple Spartan

Bred in Canada, dessert Apple Spartan is a popular late dessert apple. The fruit is medium-sized, and yellow, almost completely covered with a very deep maroon-red blush. The flesh is crisp, white and juicy, and the flavour is sweet and rather winy. The tree is easy to look after, moderately vigorous and readily producing spurs; it crops regularly and heavily and comes early into bearing. It’s a very good pollinator, and produces abundant blossom, which means that fruit needs thinning if the fruit are not to be small. Reasonably healthy, but there is some susceptibility to canker and scab.
