Triumph™ Apple Tree
Another valuable introduction from the University of Minnesota, the Triumph Apple Tree is a cross between Liberty and Honeycrisp and has the best characteristics of both parents. Fruits are sweet but with a balanced tartness that Honeycrisp often lacks and have all the disease resistance that Liberty is famous for. Trees are hardy to Zone 4 and apples will store well into winter.
