LoliPop (Story Inored)

Lolipop is a bi-coloured apple with intense bright red blush, which is faintly striped, covering +75% of the underlying pale-yellow surface. It has sparse but prominent lenticels, and a distinctly long stalk. The fruit are medium to large (65-85mm) size and of a spherical (globose) to slightly elongated shape. The flesh is a pale creamy yellow and is firm and dense rather than crisp and cracking. It has good juice levels. The fruit can attain high levels of sweetness (at 13-15oBrix), but not excessively so, and, with low acidity, makes an attractive eating apple.

Lolipop is late season apple, harvested 25 days after Granny Smith.

Growers are particularly attracted to Lolipop for its resistance to scab, good productivity, and long storage capability of up to 8 months at 3oC. It is an ideal variety for organic production.

Production is exclusively under organic regimes or the Vergers écoresponsables standard, certified by IFS and guaranteeing environmental sustainability in production.
