Ahrista

,Ahrista' is one of the first scab tolerant (scab resistant Rvi6) apple varieties and is also very robust against other diseases - its resistance to fruit tree cancer made this healthy early autumn variety conspicuous in recent years. The tree convinces by its easy training and the regular yields. The fruits are firm and juicy with a well-balanced sweet and sourish flavour.
