Developed by the PRI (Purdue/Rutgers/Illinois) apple breeding programme. Development started in 1980, released in 1992. The apple is a result of a cross between Golden Delicious and Co-op 17 Apple. The tree was developed to be disease resistant. During development, it was called the “Co-op 38” apple.
