Florina is a modern scab-resistant apple variety. Although developed in France, its parentage is primarily American, being derived from Jonathan crossed with Golden Delicious and Rome Beauty among others.
The apples are very attractive and tend to stay on the tree, allowing picking over an extended period - or you can leave a few as food for wildlife into early winter.
Shipping starts in March 2015.

Florina is in flowering group 4. Florina is self-sterile and needs to be pollinated by another tree of a different variety nearby.
Florina was developed to be resistant to scab. It also has some resistance to fireblight.
Florina is a fairly vigorous variety, and heavy cropping. It produces a lot of blossom and is a good pollinator for many other varieties.
The apples ripen about 2 weeks after Golden Delicious and before Granny Smith (both of which are good polinators for Florina).
Developed at the Institute National de Recherche Agronomique, near Angers, France during the 1970s. Also known as Florina Querina. It is closely related to Jonathan, and inherits many of that variety's well-balanced flavors.
