Pinova is a German apple cultivar. It was created in 1965 at the Institut für Obstforschung of Dresden–Pillnitz in Saxony which at that time was in the [1 ] German Democratic Republic. After Germany was re-united in 1990, the rights to the cultivar passed to the Free State of Saxony. [2 ]
Pinova is a
hybrid between Clivia and Golden Delicious. Clivia is a hybrid of Geheimrat Dr. Oldenburg and Cox's Orange Pippin. Pinova may also be called [3 ] Corail, Piñata or Sonata.
Characteristics [ edit ]
Pinova is a high-yield variety with little tendency towards
biennial bearing; it has good resistance to scab and is a good pollinator for many varieties. The fruit stores well. It has some of the taste of Cox's, the coloration of Oldenburg and the shape of Golden Delicious. [2 ]
Pinova is planted commercially in Europe. In the United States it is patented,
and may be sold under the [2 ] brand-name "Piñata".
