NICK BOTNER’S APPLES



Nick Botner is a friend of mine. I met him at the Home Orchard Societies’ Fall Fruit Show in Oregon. He collected over 4,000 apple varieties and sold scion wood. He is retiring, and he will not be selling sion wood beginning in 2014.

There is no information about many of Nick Botner’s apples. If you have grown or know about any of Nick’s varieties, please send a description of the apple variety, and I will post it here. Please list the good and bad points.

Wagonwheel Orchard sold benchgrafts of many apples from Nick Botner in 2012 and 2013. Some of of the names were misspelled on their website. I put an asterisk next to the misspelled names and listed the correct spelling.

It has come to my attention that some of Nicks apples were mislabeled. If anyone has gotten mislabeled apples from Nick, please send me the description of the mislabeled variety.

List of Mislabeled Apple Varieties

Anisim – Unfortunately, the scion wood from Botner for this variety produced a green apple with red blush. It’s a very good early October ripening apple, but it’s not what is depicted in the water color or described in the literature.

It is susceptible to apple scab and cedar apple rust. The fruit ripens over a period of several weeks. This apple is a must for apple lovers. The flesh is white, fine grained, tender, juicy, and briskly subacid. Ripens late June into July.

  • Gravenstein – A very old apple of European origin believed to have originated in the 1600’s with Duke Augustenberg of Castle Graefenstein ( Gravenstein) in Germany. It was introduced into the United States in the 1820’s by Russian settlers moving into California. An oblong or lopsided fruit having bright yellow skin with a pinkish-orange flush and light red striping. The creamy yellow flesh is tender, crisp, juicy, and aromatic. A triploid, which means it has three sets of 17 chromosomes. Triploids produce very little viable pollen and cannot be used as pollinators. For their own successful pollination and good crops they need at least one or two diploids. Ripens July to August in most areas and is not a good keeper.

  • Horse- A widely grown apple most likely originating in North Carolina before 1800. More than any other apple, most older southerners remember the Horse apple.

The Horse has a flavor unlike others. It is uniquely tart and will disappoint those who like sweet or hard apples. It is however, unforgettable. Fruit size is medium to large, yellow when ripe, possibly red on the sunny side. Flesh is yellow, soft (sometimes firm), and briskly subacid. Ripens late July into August.

The apple is medium-sized and uniform in shape.

  • Minnesota 447 – Frostbite was just recently named by the University of Minnesota. Known as MN 447, it is an older cultivar that has been used as a parent in the breeding of other successful U of MN apple varieties. Because of its unique, sweet, aromatic, and unusual flavor people who know MN 447 had been encouraging the University to release it. The fruit is only small to medium in size, being 2¼ to 2½ inches in diameter, but is very firm, crisp and juicy. It will store for 3-4 months in common storage at 34-37°F. The flesh is a creamy, light yellow. It is an attractive maroon red over a yellow gold background. It usually exhibits striped coloration, but often can be somewhat dappled. It sometimes russets lightly, depending on the season. Like most Minnesota varieties, it is extremely hardy to USDA Zone 3b (-30 to -35°F). It has low to medium vigor. The tree is spreading and produces annually.
    Excellent for eating or baking; new release in 2008, the apple is small- to medium-sized and very firm, crisp. It has a dark red fruit with a blended tropical flavor of sugarcane and pineapple.

    “Palmetta Apple”

    It must have been Larry Radke who gave this to Nick. Probably from a scion I gave to Larry at the scion exchange a couple of years ago in Canby. The original scions were collected from Victor Johansen in Fairbanks AK. The fruit is medium in size but not a good eating apple.

    Good points: Very vigorous and very unique for fast growing and spreading branches, which is the main reason Victor recommended this to me as an interstem and scaffolding grafting in espaliers that I am interested in. Very cold hardy. It originated from Russia and sent to Alaska with a group of ten other apples about 20 years ago.

    The real original name might have only a single “t” in it.

    Does it look like this?:

    In that case it’s Palmetta bred in Novosibirsk Botanical Garden from Belfleur Kitajka x M. baccata, in turn Bellefleur Kitaika itself is wild small hardy european apple (probably from min or upper Volga basin) by french Bellefleur

    Ulvanlsceva is either Uljanisheva or Pamjat’ Uljansheva which is here:

    “2n-24-62 (Кандиль-китайка х Уэлси) х 2n-21-62 (Кандиль-китайка х Уэлси)”
    (Kandil Kitaika x Wealthy) x (Kandil Kitaika x Wealthy) and Kandil Kitaika
    is in turn Kandil Sinap x Kitaika, All these series of “something Kitaika” bred by Michurin from hardy Kitaikas (wild smaller european apple from european part of northern/central/eastern Russia, mostly along Volga river ).
    Pamjat’ Ul’janisheva itself is large 200-220 g of rather good eating qualities, sells well, translates as (to the) Memory of Ul’janisheva, Ul’janishev is the breeder in Rossosh (50 north, 40 east) who also bred very nice good size apple Rossoshanskoje Polosatoje of minnesota sort of hardiness, it’s VERY scab susceptible, its about 140 DAB and stores well:

    Both Ul’janishev bred varieties have good tree structure.

    Zelenovka Sotchnaya is correctly Zelenka Sochnaja or:

    http://www.vniispk.ru/apple.php?key=104

    A fall variety distributed from russian Far East up to about Khabarovsk or so, can grow in upper MN or ND and further up, fire blight reaction is not known, rather scab resistant, apples don’t rot in wet climates, does not keep well, on tart-sour side, strong apple taste and smell.

    Slovianka is correctly Slavjanka, Annas Reinette x Antonovka, one of Michurin’s crosses,

    http://www.sadproekt.ru/yablonya-slavyanka

    Winter mid-small size apple, something expected of a successful Antonovka cross, around Wealthy level of cold hardiness, productive, good pie apple.

    Rozovoye Priewoskhodnoye = Duchess x Transparent, summer apple of very good cold hardiness close to Duchess:

    Not particularly up to date, something to expect from the cross mentioned.

    Basakirian Beauty or Bashkirskij Krasavets:

    http://www.vniispk.ru/apple.php?key=34

    Fall apple, more cold hardy then Antonovka or probably even Duchess and Anis (either Red or Grey type), around 110 g, can store 2-3 month, trees survive over 75 years in Ufa.

    I have swapped and traded with Nick since the late 80’s and can help with descriptions on some of these that I sent to him and or know the description of.

    Binet Violet – I obtained from a guy named Russ Hill (Hill’s Orchard or Nursery?)who lived in California. He described Binet Violet as the lazy man’s apple because it barely grows and barely produces. I described it that way to Nick when I sent him scion wood and the description fits. I did find a description on a French website that describes it as a bittersweet cider variety. Small to medium sized greenish fruit with a purplish blush on the sunny side. Bittersweet and juicy.

    Raven – I obtained this variety in the 80’s from a guy who was in his 80’s and had a nursery called Raven Island Nursery off the coast of Washington State. It is a red fleshed, red skinned variety that makes excellent cider. Three years ago a company in Washington that produces artisanal hard cider bought scion wood of this variety from me and plan on producing cider using it. Like most red fleshed varieties this one is tart but very juicy and makes great red cider.

    Pink Sparkle – This was a variety that I ordered from Southmeadow Fruit Gardens in Michigan as a “new” red fleshed variety. When I unpacked the tree I found a Pink Pearmain label from Greenmantle Nursery down on the bottom of tree. Southmeadow bought Pink Pearmains and relabled them. I called Ram Fishman at Greenmantle and let him know but Pink Sparkle is out as an unique variety and it is not. If you grow it, use the correct name, Pink Pearmain.

    Ken, thanks for the list. Nick’s list is the only collection I have found stateside that has the Santana apple variety that is reputed to be low-allergen. My wife is mildly allergic and I would love to be able to find this tree – do you know if anyone else in the forum has purchased/grown this variety? Thanks either way, and best wishes to Nick in his well-deserved retirement.
