Pinova was developed to be resistant to scab, and the blossom has some resistance to late frosts too.
Advice on fruit tree pollination.
Pinova was developed at the Institute for Fruit Research, Dresden-Pillnitz, Germany in the 1980s. It is a cross between Golden Delicious and Cox crossed with Duchess of Oldenburg.
Whilst Cox is not particularly disease-resistant, Golden Delicious is reasonably problem free and Duchess of Oldenburg is an old hardy and reliable Russian apple variety.
There is also some evidence that Pinova is a triploid variety, with 3 sets of chromomes instead of the usual 2. This often imparts extra disease-resistance. However Pinova does not have many of the other characteristics of a triploid variety (e.g. vigorous shoots and thick leaves).
