Prima Apple

Prima is the first U.S. apple with scab resistens on the basis of Vf gene. From 1970 Prima was released for general cultivation. Prima was developed from the varieties Golden Delicious, Melba, Rome Beauty and Malus floribunda 821 (From which Vf gene originates).

The tree grows vigorously, bears early and produce high returns. The apples hangs securely on the tree. Scab resistance due to Vf gene are broken by new scab races.

The apple is medium-sized, yellow with red color. The flesh is crisp and juicy with a fresh and juicy taste.

Prima are no longer recommended as garden variety, as leaves and apples are heavily attacked by scab.
