Even earlier than William's Pride. Pristine has good disease resistant to cedar apple rust and apple scab, but can get spur blight in wet springs. The bright yellow fruit dependably ripens here yearly. Excellent for fresh eating for such an early apple. A good keeper for an early apple. Texture is not hard like a winter apple, but crisp and zesty. A good substitute for Lodi apple, being good for apple sauce like Lodi but much better quality for eating out of hand. Space 10' circles for dwarf trees and 15' for semi-dwarf. Space @ 25' for standard. Zones 5-7.
