Pristine is a medium round apple with translucent lemon-yellow skin and a light pink blush. A crisp, juicy apple with pale yellow flesh, its sweet-tart flavor has hints of citrus. Pristine is unusually crisp for an early season apple, and stores well compared to many early varieties. It is one of the earliest apples to ripen, in mid-August.
