from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

'Anacuta' is one of the oldest known cultivars of the cultivated apple .


The fruits of 'Anacuta' are large with a loose “ pulp ”. The slightly acidic fruits only have a moderate taste.

The tree grows moderately without any particular abnormalities. While the leaves show a medium susceptibility to scab and infections by Podosphaera leucotricha ( powdery mildew ), this is low in the case of the fruits.


The 'Anacuta' variety was first described in Italy in the 15th century. Manfred Fischer suspects that the variety already existed in Roman times , but no evidence can be found for this.


The 'Anacuta' variety is only suitable for variety collectors on a medium-strong base . Cultivation is not recommended because later cultivated varieties also have better properties for orchard cultivation .
