DESCRIPTIONJonagld - this is an early fruiting variety that produces a moderate amount of fruit, with a tendency to alternate fruiting. Fruits are medium-sized or large, spherical-conical, and ribbed at the calyx. The green-yellow skin is smooth, and with a slightly greasy texture. A third of the surface is covered with a red, fuzzy-stripy blush. The flesh is creamy, hard, moderately firm, juicy, aromatic, sweet-sour, and above all tasty.
ADVICESThe tree is best planted in a sunny position. It grows well in fertile, sandy-loam soil which is moderately moist, and has an optimum pH in the range of 6,2-6,7.
To stimulate future growth the tree should be pruned in the first year immediately after planting. Formative pruning should be executed on the main stem 20 cm above where the planned future branches will grow. The other branches should also be cut, reducing their length by one third. The best time to prune the apple tree is annually in the spring. Jonagold pollination requires the presence of other varieties flowering at the same time. Best results can be achieved by planting with varieties Discovery, Vista Bella, James Grieve, Delicoius, Idared, Jonathan,Elstar,Gloster, Szampion, Spartan, Cortland.
