Sundance is a high-quality late-season dessert apple, aimed at commercial growers and backyard orchardists. The flesh is very crisp and snaps cleanly, and the flavor is initially sharp and tangy, but sweetens and becomes more complex in storage.

As well as great flavor, Sundance has excellent disease-resistance.

Please note that Sundance is a trademarked and patented variety, and purchasers agree not to propagate or distribute the trees. In addition, customer address details may be made available to the licence holder if requested.
