Made available to the public in the 2000s, the Story Apple (or Story Inored) is a disease resistant variety from the Novadi Corporation in France. It was bred to be a late apple, disease resistant, and fresh eating. It is conically shaped and striking red covering nearly 95% of the apple. It is very firm, crispy, thick skinned (good for disease resistance and storage), and very sweet.
It is a late-season ripener, about 20 days after Golden Delicious and is a consistent fruit setter. It has shown resistance to numerous apple diseases and stays small on many rootstocks. It also is a great storing apple keeping for nearly 8 months under normal conditions. Check out Story's Fact Sheet here!
