Triumph Semi-Dwarf Apple Tree
*Bare-root apple trees will begin shipping mid-April 2022*
A luscious cross of Honeycrisp and Liberty, Triumph is incredibly juicy, crisp and sweet with just the right amount of tart. With flavors of ‘honey and elderflower,’ we loved our 2021 taste test where Triumph was described as ‘dynamic’ ‘flavor explosion’ and ‘my new favorite apple!’ A delectable mid-season apple with impressive disease resistance, Triumph ripens from late September through early October here in Zone 5.
We are sharing Triumph 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.
If you’ve never heard of Triumph, you’re not alone — and not for long! Formerly known as MN80, Triumph is a brand new release from University of Minnesota, fall of 2021. Triumph is the best of both worlds with flavors from Honeycrisp and resilience from Liberty, including resistance to apple scab and less susceptibility to bitter pit. So far, no signs of fire blight! Triumph also stores well into the winter and is hardy to zone 4.
We also love that Triumph can be grown by us all! While this may not sound revolutionary, 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 downright delicious apple that everyone now can grow. We were so fortunate to taste Triumph this fall at UMaine’s Highmoor Farm experimental orchard as well as Black Diamond Orchard and Cider in the Finger Lakes of New York.
