About the apple
The apple has a good balance between sweet and sour. It has a sweet taste but always with some acidity, which gives depth to the taste profile.. Characteristic is his intense red-pink blush with clear lenticels on a light green-yellow background and star-shaped light green stripes shooting from the base of the stalk .It’s a bi-colour apple which colours over more than 80% of the fruit surface. Colouring is easy, but sufficient temperature difference is still needed to achieve optimal coloration. The apple must be grown at heights in warmer areas.
The fruits have good storage potential in CA regime without 1-MCP until April and have a good shelf life. Further research is still ongoing.
ZOUK32 has a natural tolerance against scab. This is a multi-genetic trait from one of the parents, Rubinstep C.O.V.. In contrast to varieties that are resistant via the VF gene, multi-genetic varieties appear to be more robust in the long term. The harvest time is 10 to 14 days after Gala. It has a big fruit size and gives a very homogenous crop. The tree is sufficiently vigorous and has a rather basitone growth. This results in well-branched trees that generate high productions in short term.
