Product information "Apple Paradis® Sparkling®"

An apple is an apple. But not in this case. Our new breeding Paradis Sparkling® is different. So different, just as the name describes: Sparkling® explodes in your mouth. When the large cells release their juice, it feels as if CO2 is brought into play. To stay with the analogy: Paradis Sparkling® is the first apple that is not 'still', but 'sparkling'!

This apple variety is so different that I can remember the exact day when I selected it in the field amongst thousands of seedlings. In general, apples at this early stage are just mere numbers and they are only able to undergo more intensive testing and over the years, they gain personality and stature. But on that day in September 2006, I was with my cousin Robert, a psychiatrist. He wanted to do something tangible for one day, eat fruits, with both feet on the ground. Then we walked by an apple tree and we really wanted to skip over it because the apples looked somewhat unattractive. But something pulled me back, I turned around, grabbed an apple, cut a slice for Robert and one for me - and we ate a Paradis Sparkling® apple for the very first time! This is what I wrote in my notes: "sour, sweet and tangy. Effervescent tablet, texture is very unique."

And a year later, also very uncommon in breeding, where the variety name is usually assigned just before the market launch, it got its present name. Tomi Hungerbühler, the apple whisperer, bit into apple no. 85 - and exclaimed spontaneously: "Sparkling!" Yes, that is just how it felt and feels when this apple is eaten in its ideal full ripeness.

Did I mention that the first fruits in 2006 were pretty unattractive? I wouldn’t judge our Sparkling® apple this hard today, but perhaps the taste obscures my eyes? Anyway, I consider it my duty and obligation to point out some negative characteristics of Sparkling®:




 
  • It is irregular in shape and size; it can produce huge apples or even medium-sized apples, on the same tree, in the same year.
  • Its colouring is irregularly striped, with a red base colour that is not always bright.
  • There is not just one harvest period, but the tree must be picked 3-4 times.
Haven’t I now just pronounced the death sentence for the new variety Paradis Sparkling®?
No, not at all! All these “negative” points cause no real problems in home gardens; the inferential maturity may even be an advantage! And that Paradis Sparkling® is not the most beautiful apple out there today only shows us what ultimately counts: inner qualities!
 
Form/appearance: Medium to large, round, red striped (about 30-50% fully coloured), yellow when ripe
Texture/firmness: Very firm, large cells with extremely strong cell walls: the juice explodes during eating
Flavour: Sweet/sour, sugar is dominant with increasing maturity, but overall very balanced, fresh
Aroma: Like how every apple should taste, but unfortunately this is usually not the case
Growth/health: Resistant to scab, slightly susceptible to powdery mildew, medium strong growth, somewhat loosely branched
Shelf life: Until January

Hi. Ive just bought one of these. I don't have another apple tree. Will this still here fruit? Thanks

Pollination (Sonja Dreher)

Hello
Sparkling needs another aplle tree for pollination. But ir doesn not have to be in your garden. If there are apple tree in the gardens of your neighbours it would not be a problem even if the second tree is 1000 meters away.

I want to try them (Manuel)

Hi, as soon as I read that a sparkling apple exists, I fell in love with it. I would love to try it, but to be honest, I'd like to order the fruit only (not the tree). Would it be possible to get some? Sorry I can't see any references to this in the website. I'm from Italy by the way. Cheers

Apple paradis sparkling (sonja dreher)

Hello,
Thank you for your interest in our products.
Unfortunately we cannot ship to the US yet.
There are so many restrictions and reglementations on importing living plants, and the traveling time could be too long for some species.
Maybe Mr. Kobelt, our Boss, will think about a solution, now that we have so much positive feedback on our products from the USA.
Of course we will make an announcement, if we start shipping overseas.

Dispatch (Peter Clarke)

Before I need to know if the wet climate I have here where I live is suitable for the apple "Sparkling" I want to know why I am unable to order the apple tree when ordering as I am informed the only option of delivery is not available! So is it too late for this year or not?

chill hours for sparking apple variety? (J Secrist)

1. Chill hours of sparking variety? It would seem the long picking period would be ideal for home gardener 2. Have apple varieties been grown via tissue culture? Might be one way to export to America, hard to transmit dIseases/pests on sterile culture.

 
Nov 17, 2014

Sparkling (Your Lubera Team - Sonja Hendrischke)

Hello,
Sparkling needs 1500-2000 chill hours, as our climate is quite moderate.
The apple has yet not been grown by tissueculture.
Sparkling was made by cross-breeding.it has not been genetically modified.
It is a very nice variety for the homegardener, and with ist fresh and juicy taste even kids do like it.

Seeds (Vincent)

I know shipping live plants into the US is difficult. But what about just selling and shipping packages of seeds. So we can grow out tree from scratch so to speak. Thanks so much for for time and awesome work and dedication on this plant. Cheers!

 
Nov 17, 2014

Sparkling (Soja hendrischke)

Hello,
thank you for your Kind words, it is much appreciated,
sorry, we are only a tree nursery and do not gain seeds from our trees.
This is not very easy, as most People might think, as you have to protect the apple variety from being pollinated by other apple trees. If so , you would not get the prue varietie, but just a mix, not knowing who the "Daddy" is.

We do not collect seeds from our trees to sell, as we are a tree nursery. The Apples would be pollinated by all other appletrees around and the seeds would not be of the pure variety.
