Abstract: 'Fortune' is an excellent dual use variety because it is suitable for fresh and processing markets. 'Fortune' is an apple that gained high praise from growers before being officially named and introduced. In fact, it was so successful in trials throughout the United States that growers strongly requested it be named. The highly colored 'Fortune' is a hybrid of 'Schoharie Spy' x 'Empire' and it combines the desirable attributes of both parents. Itprovides consumers with a large attractive fruit that has good flavor and texture and can be eaten fresh or used in baking or salads. For growers, it offers a mid-season variety that resembles 'Empire' but has the processing characteristics of 'Spy', with less of the production problems of 'Spy'. The slightly spicy flavor is a sprightly blend of sugar and acid. The apple has creamcolor flesh, crisp texture, and stores well.
