Bright Future Apple

Apple

Parentage: Lady Williams x Discovery

Description: Bright Future is a modern, very high quality eating variety. An excellent flavour with a good balance of sweetness and acidity. Attractive red-orange fruit with subtle stripes and a crisp texture. Beautiful pure white flowers in the spring. A late season variey which is eaten after Christmas and stores very well into the New Year. It's a great variety for organic gardeners as its bred to be highly disease resistant. Happiest when its planted in a sunny sheltered spot!
