Another excellent Cornel University apple, 'Cordera' (NY56) is named for Robert Lamb, a Cornell University apple breeder. Cordera means lamb in Spanish. This prolific breeding program produces apples made for northern climates with inherent disease resistance. Made by crossing the popular Honeycrisp with a hybrid of a Spartan and Liberty apples to yield a delicious yet disease resistant apple. Announced in 2019 and made available to the public in 2022- this apple is new to the scene but accomplished many goals that growers set out to improve orchards. 

The Cordera Apple  is round and large sized with greenish- yellow skin that ripens to a peachy red color. The skin is thin yet present (an unusual trait- thicker skin is more common with disease resistance). Crisp and mild apple flavor that is sweeter more than tart. This later season apple is similar to Honeycrisp in both taste and appearance. Shipping Spring 2023
