New is a relative term, there are apple varieties dating back to the 1200's so new could be one developed in 1818 under those terms! Just a little gardening humor there. I'll use the term "newer" just to be on the safe side. Here are afew "newer" varieties of apple I came across: 'Pink Lady', a hot climate apple from Australia that is designated as sweet-tart. There is a new variety of 'Braeburn' from New Zealand now available, a late season that is crisp andtangy. Another one that is considered "new" is a Japanese 'Fuji'; sweet and crisp. These are available from Bay Laurel Nursery at http://www.baylaurelnursery.co.... Many orchards offer new introductions each year. Miller Nurseries is offering 'Macfree', an improved, highly disease resistant MacIntosh. You can contact Miller at 1-800-836-9630. Stark Brothers is offering 'Honeycrisp', which is described as a dessert apple. Contact Stark Bros. at www.starkbros.com.
