Product information "Apple Bionda® Bella"

With Bionda Bella® we introduce the third variety in the yellow Bionda® apple series: Marilyn is the earliest and sweetest, Patrizia is rather sour and Bella is closest to Golden Delicious - balanced in flavour, it has a very good shelf life and an excellent texture. 


Round, slightly tall, the "greenest" Bionda® variety


Bella® is the successor of the good old Golden; it is THE Bionda® variety that is the best overall.  It has the storability of Patrizia and the best texture; the flavour is balanced in the autumn months (sweet with good acidity, then it gets sweeter - just like Golden Delicious).


Compact, weak growth, very well-branched; resistant to scab; no russeting.


Approximately 20 September, ready to eat immediately, but gets sweeter the longer it’s stored; very good shelf life until February/March, its crispness and freshness keeps longer and is more distinct than Golden Delicious

Apple Bionda® Bella (Liyang)

Hello, I wonder if this apple similar as the English apple 'Greensleeves'? Is it hardy and easy to grow in the Northeast of England? Thanks.

Apple Bionda® Bella (Sonja Dreher)

Bella Bionda ripens in October instead September like Greensleeves, it has a good shelf life (3-4 month) during storage it gets sweeter and sweeter. The Taste reminds a bit of Golden Delicious. So it can be compared to Greensleeves. Only that the colour is a bit more yellowish.
Bella Bionda is scab resistant, winterhardy and robust.

kind regards
