Triumph is a new cold-hardy disease-resistant apple, released in 2021 by the University of Minnesota. 

The apples ripen towards the end of September, and have a tart flavor. They can be stored in a fridge for 3 months or more.

Triumph is a cross between Honeycrisp and Liberty, and can perhaps be regarded as an improved Honeycrisp.

How to grow

Triumph appears to have resistance to fire blight and scab, but some susceptibility to cedar apple rust. It is a good choice for organic growers.

As you would expect from a variety from Minnesota, it is reliably cold-hardy to zone 4.

Advice on fruit tree pollination.


Triumph as developed by the University of Minnesota, under the reference MN80. It is the latest in a long line of cold-hardy apple varieties stretching back over a hundred years.
