Semi-Dwarf Apple Tree. Brilliantly sweet and perfectly tart, gloriously juicy and easy to grow! Cordera hails from the lineage of Honeycrisp and an unnamed relative of Liberty, combining flavor and disease resistance for the ages. When we first savored Cordera in the fall of 2021, we fell in love with the bright fruit sweetness and rich aroma, the depth of flavor and the fabulous crunch. The bright rose and crimson skin shines with speckled yellow, straight out of a fairy tale.

If you’ve never heard of Cordera, you’re not alone — and not for long! We first tasted Cordera at Black Diamond Orchard, practically an apple’s throw (!) from Cornell, who we have to thank for cultivating this extraordinary new apple across many, many seasons. Formerly known as NY56, Cordera is the best of both worlds with flavors from Honeycrisp and resilience from Liberty, including resistance to apple scab and fire blight on Geneva 935 rootstock. Ideal for all who wish to spray less or not at all, Cordera also stores well into the winter and is hardy to zone 4.

Tree shipping is limited to the following states: CT, DE, IA, IL, IN, MD, ME, MI, MN, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, VT, WI, WV

Note: Trees must be purchased separately from all other items like seeds and tools. Thank you!

We are sharing Cordera on Geneva 935 dwarfing rootstock, making it easier to pick, prune, and maintain than standard sized trees. Dwarfing trees are more precocious than standards, bearing fruit earlier in age

And Friends, Cordera can be grown by us all! While this may not seem remarkable, many new apple varieties are available exclusively to certain growers, so we applaud the vision and generosity of the breeders and their extended networks for putting so many years of work into creating this phenomenal apple we all can grow and savor for generations to come.
