Introduced by the Pennsylvania State University, Nittany is a York Imperial-type apple possessing outstanding processing characteristics. Its flavor and attractive orange-red color also give it good fresh market potential. Flesh oxidizes very slowly and imparts a highly desirable yellow color to processed products. Nittany needs to be aggressively thinned to avoid biennial bearing.
