BELONGS TO CATEGORIES Fruit trees

Summerred is an early apple tree variety from 1964 which originated in Canada as a self-pollination of McIntosh Red and Golden Delicious. Though both the parents are midseason apples, Summer Red produces its fruit as early as from late August in a good season. The apples are medium large, beautiful, red flushed to completely red, and the white flesh is excellent – mild, sweet with only a hint of acidity, and very juicy. They can store for 2-3 weeks in a fridge but are great eaten off the tree and can be harvested continuously for more than a month.

Summerred is very resistant to powdery mildew but prone to scab and cancer in large orchards and cold, wet grounds. In private gardens they are usually healthy without a need for protection. Trees are very hardy in wood as well as in bud and can cope with almost all soil conditions and locations including cold regions. Yields are high.

Apple trees will grow in almost any well-drained soil but for best results provide them with deep, fertile soil and keep it moist at least 6 months after transplanting, and in early summer when fruit is formed. Being self-sterile it needs another pollinator for heavy crop, such as Alkmene, Antonovka, Čistecké, Idared, James Grieve, Korobovka, Linda, Polka, Red Devil a Violette. Pruning can be done in frost-free periods of winter but it benefits from being left to its own devices. Very hardy to abt. -34 °C (USDA zone 4).
