Jonafree Apple (Malus domestia) is a Midseason delicious improved Jonathan type dessert apple with strong resistance to fire blight, mildew and cedar rust.  Very productive. Will not pollinate with King or Gravenstein. USDA Zones 5-8.

Jonafree’ is an attractive red apple (Malus domestia Borkh) with field immunity to apple scab incited by Venturia inaequalis (Cke) Wint. The fruit is of medium size and matures with ‘Jonathan’. It is released as a potential commercial cultivar with strong resemblance to ‘Jonathan’ in many major horticultural characters in addition to its similar maturity date.

‘Jonafree’ is the 5th apple cultivar (1, 2, 3, 4) developed by the cooperative apple breeding program of the Illinois, Indiana, and New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Stations. It appears best adapted to those climatic regions which favor good development of ‘Jonathan’. The attractive glossy red fruit closely resembles ‘Jonathan’ in size and shape (Fig. 1). The medium red overcolor covers up to 95% of the fruit surface, but when allowed to become full ripe on the tree does not develop the very dark red characteristic of some ‘Jonathan’ strains.
