Malus domestica 'Belmac'
A new, productive, all-purpose Canadian cultivar that combines flavor and keeping ability with cold and disease resistance. The sweet, medium-to-large, deep red apples ripen in late September or early October and keep three months or more. A delicious, sweet/tart MacIntosh flavor suggests its parent, Spartan. It was bred by Dr. Shahrokh Khanizadeh in Quebec and introduced in 1996. Offered under agreement with Ag. Canada, Quebec. Includes $1.20 royalty per tree.
Belmac resists scab, mildew, and cedar apple rust, thrives in eastern Canada, and has proven a winner in western Washington.
