Product information "Columnar Apple Malini® Black Beauty"

Black Beauty® is the darkest apple we have ever bred.
The apple is firm, juicy and crisp, with a balanced aroma, with sugar and acidity. Of course, this Malini® is also resistant to scab. Its columnar growth also belongs to the more vigorous growing group (up to 300 cm after 7 years), but in contrast to Mannequin, Black Beauty sometimes develops side shoots. These should be cut back to 10 cm around the longest day. If they are left, Black Beauty develops into a kind of cacti shape, similar to the shape of Jewish candlesticks.
Appearance: The darkest apple that we have bred so far
Texture/firmness: Firm, juicy and crisp; the skin is somewhat firm, the colour is not surprising ;)
Flavour: Balanced aroma, with sugar and acidity
Growth/health: Resistant to scab, columnar growth; note: like to produce single side shoots; please consistently cut back to 15 cm in June/July
Harvest/maturity: October, late ripening; the aroma becomes much better if Black Beauty hangs on the bush a bit longer
