Created at the Experimental Botany in Prague in 2008, this apple is a cross between the prolific Golden Delicious and the modern Topaz apples. It is medium to large in size, round to slightly conical with mild ribbing along its sides. The skin is bright yellow with a faint orange hue on the sun side and is smooth and waxy. It is this waxiness that helps this apple store a long time- up to 20 weeks in proper storage. The flesh is light yellow, firm, crisp, tart and wonderfully juicy. The flavors peaks a couple weeks into storage but can be eaten right off the tree. 

The tree itself is somewhat vigorous and grows upright. It is also a heavy bearer and benefits from thinning to prevent biennialism. It is resistant to scab and tolerant of powdery mildew.
