Williams’ Pride

All the disappointment of Carolina Red June has been forgotten now that I’ve harvested Williams’ Pride.  It is the perfect summer apple; firm, crisp, juicy, sweet, spicy, colorful, and keeps decently.  It bears early in its lifetime, even on vigorous rootstocks, and is productive and reliable in our climate.  It will blossom and set fruit in 100 degree weather and color up nicely despite hot nights.  Did I mention it is highly disease-resistant?  We owe the folks at PRI a debt of gratitude for this one.  I planted a full-size tree of it out back.
