Apple Tree Variety Spreadsheet. 1.30.14

I put together this spreadsheet for my apple varieties.  It takes time to find info about pollen compatibility, disease resistance, heritage.   Sources are mainly raintreenursery.com (RT) and orangepippin.com (OP).  Not the best spreadsheet but the program is free via google (checkmate Microsoft!)

Honeycrisp patent is expired.   Honeycrisp was developed at the University of Minnesota, in 1974.  Cross of Macoun x Honeygold.

Jonagold was developed in  1953 as a cross between Jonathan and Golden Delicious.

Pristine was developed in 1975 at Purdue, as part of Purdue / Rutgers / Illinois consortium.  Pristine has in its ancestry Rome Beauty, Golden Delicious, MacIntosh, Starking Delicious, Malus floribunda, and others.

I'm still looking for info about the others.
