Description Introduced by Pennsylvania State University, Nittany is a York Imperial type apple possessing outstanding processing characteristics. Its flavor and attractive orange-red color also give it good fresh market potential. The apple can be held in refrigerated storage for up to six months. Flesh oxidizes very slowly and imparts a highly desirable yellow color to processed products. Nittany needs to be aggressively thinned to avoid biennial bearing.

Characteristics Bloom: Late Season Maturity Date: October 12 Fruit Color: Red

Pollination Information Nittany blooms late in the season and will pollinate all other late-blooming varieties. It will also pollinate varieties blooming in the middle of the season.
