First developed at Purdue University Breeding Program in the 1970s and released to the public in 1988, the PRI2845-1 apple is another excellent example of that programs Disease Resistance Breeding Program. Crossed from PRI 1018-101 and NJ 50 and fortunately renamed Williams Pride after Edwin B. Williams- long time leader and professor emeritus of the breeding program. 

The apple is medium sized and flushes to a deep red color in late summer. Bred to be a disease resistant, early dessert apple. It is ready to harvest a full 8 weeks before the Delicious varieties.
