Discovery Apple

Discovery comes from Suffolk in England, where it was named in 1962. Probably a cross between Worcester Pearmain and Beauty of Bath. Discovery came to Denmark around 1980 and very quickly became a very grown variety in both orchards and gardens.

The tree is growing slightly with a compact and upright growth. It comes quickly in good impulsion and is very fruitful in relation to the size of tree. The tree is resistant to the worst diseases and suitable for organic cultivation.

Flowering is medium early with medium sized flowers.

Discovery is an early apple with a firm, sweet and slightly aromatic flesh. The apples are medium in size and slightly flattened round with a bright red color. The flesh can be more or less red.

The apples can be picked from the end of August. There is little fallout propensity, why apples can be developed on the tree until they are ripe. Optimal eating quality in Week 36 - 40. (UK).

Discovery is one of the best early eating apples, but it is also suitable for desserts and salads.

Good apple variety for the garden.
