William's Red Apple
'Williams' Pride' is an early-maturing, attractive, dark red apple (Malus xdomestica Borkh.) with excellent fruit quality and field immunity to apple scab incited by Venturia inaequalis (Cke.) Wint. The fruit is of medium to large size and matures with the very earliest known commercial red cultivars in the midwestem United States. It ripens 1 week after 'Lodi' and 7.5 to 8 weeks before 'Delicious'. 'Williams' Pride' is released as a potential commercial cultivar for use as a summer dessert apple.
