Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Regent is one of many varieties developed by the renowned and long-running University of Minnesota cold-hardy apple breeding program, and released in the early 1960s.
Regent was long-assumed to be a cross of Daniels Red Duchess and Delicious, but DNA-testing in 2020 confirmed that it was actually a cross of Haralson and McIntosh. The visual resemblance to Haralson is quite apparent.
