Apple Cultivars for Processing

  • Roger D. Way
  • Mark R. McLellan

Abstract

In this chapter we discuss the orchard, tree, and fresh-fruit characteristics of apple (Malus X domestica Borkh.) cultivars (horticultural varieties), as well as the processing qualities of important cultivars. However, before describing these cultivar traits, we review the total apple industry: where in the world and in the United States apples are grown; how many apples are produced in each area; and what portion is used for processing and for fresh markets.
