JONAGORED Apples (United States Patent PP05937)

Nina got the result back from Bogdale Farm, determining the kind of apple we have growing in the garden:

“The sample is a dark red form of JONAGOLD and probably the form known as
JONAGORED. This is a modern apple and the tree would have been planted
comparatively recently. It is a vigorous variety, usually crops well and would have
become weeping under the weight of crops.”

Its worth while reading the Wikipedia entry on the Jonagoled

“The Jonagored Apple, a sport mutation of Jonagold, was once covered under United States Patent PP05937, now expired.”
