Novaspy is a cross between NovaEasyGro x (Northern Spy x Golden Delicious) developed in Nova Scotia in 1986.
Large, red fruit with crisp, juicy flesh. Tart, sweet, and a complex vanilla like flavor. Keeps well.
Moderately vigorous, more precocious than Northern Spy. It is compared to a more disease-resistant, earlier bearing Northern Spy. Very good resistance to fireblight according to Michigan trials. Resistant to some, but not all, strains of apple scab. Ripens in early-mid October, between Northern Spy and Mutsu. Hardy to zone 4.
