History and description of Sunrise

Sunrise apple was bred from a McIntosh Red x Golden Delicious at Summerland Research Station in British Columbia, Canada in 1990. It is a bright red well shaped conical fruit. The white flesh is juicy and crisp with a good balance of sweetness and acidity. It is one of the best flavoured early apples. Unlike most early apples Sunrise hangs well and keeps well on the tree. As a result it has a very long picking season which can last from mid August to the end of September. It also crops well. It does however have the disadvantage of being susceptible to scab and therefore less suited for wetter parts of the UK.
