History and description of Rubinola

Rubinola is a cross between Prima and Rubin bred by the Institute of Experimental Botany in the Czech Republic as part of a programme to develop new disease resistant apple varieties. It was first registered in 1997.

The fruit is medium to large and almost perfectly round in shape. The skin is quite thin and a very attractive red colour over a yellow background. The yellow flesh is firm and crisp but very juicy, almost melting at the same time. It is sweet with fine aromatic flavour. Rubinola is consistently one of the favourite varieties amongst the visitors at the Keepers Nursery annual open days. When cut the flesh does not darken even after long exposure. It is a mid to late season variety best eaten from late September to the end of October but will keep much longer well into the winter if stored.

Rubinola is vigorous producing a large, attractive spreading tree. It is very resistant to apple scab and also resistant to apple powdery mildew. It is tip bearer requiring mainly formative pruning. It crops well but not excessively and requires no crop thining.
