First available in 2021, the Triumph apple is a recent University of Minnesota variety. A cross between the Honey Crisp and Liberty apples, the Triumph pocesses traits from both its parents. It is a medium sized apple, bright red in color, and shiny. It is sweet with the slightest hint of tartness with crisp white flesh. Ready to harvest right around mid-September, it is a great pollinator for mid season apples.
The Triumph shows excellent tolerance to Apple scab- a common apple malady. It also shows only low susceptibility to Cedar Apple Rust and it has not been observed to catch fire blight. This apple does take a couple years to produce fruit but is a consistent and heavy cropper once it get established.
