Malus domestica 'Sunrise'
This is a Sunrise that lasts a long, long time! A great new patented variety from British Columbia, introduced in 1990, with McIntosh and Golden Delicious as parents. Each August these upright trees produce huge crops of large, red-over-yellow apples that are very sweet, tender, crisp, and juicy. A wonderful, new early-season choice for the northern backyard grower - especially since the fruit will hang on the tree for up to 4 weeks without losing its eating quality!
A reliable early-mid bloomer (category 2) that will pollinize other apples in categories 1-3. On EMLA 26 dwarf rootstock.
