Niedzwetzkyana Apple

One of the first red fleshed apples to be discovered, Niedzwetzkyana occurs naturally in the Central Asia and is threatened in its native habitat where only a small number survive today. We are growing a single clone under the name Niedzwetzkyana, though the name has been used in the past to describe the various seedlings containing red flesh that grow in that area. These apples have contributed many of the red flesh genetics that we see in most of the red fleshed apples we eat today.

Latin Name: Malus sp.
Site and Soil: Apples like 1/2 day to full sun and well-drained soil.
Rootstock Description: M-7 is considered a semi-dwarf rootstock growing 12-16 ft. in height. M-7 is very hardy and adapted to most soils. Vigorous, drought tolerant, and well anchored, trees on M-7 should not require staking.
Pollination Requirements: Apples need another variety nearby for pollination. Neighboring trees often offer sufficient pollen for good fruit set. Consider Mason Bees to help pollinate and increase fruit production.
Hardiness: Hardy to minus 30° F or below.
Bearing Age: 2-3 years after planting.
Size at Maturity: 12-16 ft. in height
Taste: Sweet, aromatic
Fruit Skin: Red
Fruit Flesh: Dark red
Bloom Time: April
Ripening Time: Early October
Yield: 30-50 lbs.
Pests & Diseases: Somewhat susceptible to Apple Scab. Apple Scab is especially a problem in regions with wet springs, like we have in the Pacific Northwest. While it doesn’t seriously affect the eating quality of the fruit, it can cause black spots on the apples and foliage. Apple Scab can be controlled by sulfur and other sprays. Codling Moth can create wormy apples and aphids can damage the foliage of apple trees.
