Released to the public in 1975 from the Aomori Apple Experimental Research Station in northern Japan; it is a cross between the Golden Delicious and Jonathan apples. This is the same Research Station that created the Fuji apple- one might also recognize the Golden Delicious and Jonathan cross also yielded the Querina apple. Apple breeding is a complex and patient game.
