Best disease resistant apples?

David Hudson
last year

Looking to add another tree or two this spring. What are the best tasting or best growing disease resistant varieties you have tried? I’m considering sweet sixteen, sundance, Suncrisp, alkmene, Liberty, Sansa, and crimson topaz. Anyone have experience with these? Can anyone suggest other varieties?


(Already have Williams pride and some heirlooms)


I live in zone 5, near Chicago. We have all the major diseases here but cedar Apple rust is especially bad.
