Sunrise is an excellent modern summer apple, ripening at the end of August.
Although descended from two notably sweet North American varieties, McIntosh and Golden Delicious, Sunrise is quite different. It is distinctly crisp to the bite, and the flavour is fairly sharp and tangy - but still sweeter than many other early varieties.
Unlike many early-season apple varieties, Sunrise will keep for up to a week in a fridge. The apples will also hang on the tree over a period of 2-3 weeks without becoming overripe, allowing you to pick them as you need them. If you have a surplus try juicing the apples - Sunrise makes a good sweet/sharp juice.
Sorry we have not been able to produce any trees of this variety this season.
We may still be able to propagate it to order for you. Please contact us for more details.
Sunrise is in flowering group 2. Sunrise is self-sterile and needs to be pollinated by another tree of a different variety nearby.
Sunrise is a heavy-cropping variety which is easy to grow.
Developed at the Summerland Research Station in Canada in the 1990s, Sunrise is related to McIntosh and Golden Delicious.
