(Caudle Cv.)

A chance seedling found by Darrel Caudle near Dryden, Washington in 1987. The fruit is firm, crisp and characterized by a highly appealing sub-acid, aromatic flavor. Fruit shape is conic, very similar to Delicious but without the "bumps" on the bottom. The color is bright red stripe over creamy background. The tree is a semi-spur with good vigor, precocity and productivity. Mildew, scald, bitter pit and watercore have not been observed with this variety. Matures two weeks before Fuji and has a long harvest window with storage life comparable to Fuji.
