The Evelina is a European apple - Club. The apple is planted in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Slovakia and Croatia. The peel of the apple is mainly red with stripes, covered with a light yellow colour, its flesh is described as crisp and with a sweet, slightly sour, fresh taste.
Compared to the Pinova, the Evelina has an earlier and more intense red color. The pulp is crisp, the skin and consistency firm, so it stays fresh and can be stored in the refrigerator for a long time. The coloring of the fruits is less influenced by hail nets than with the original Pinova variety.
The Evelina apple was bred by Pflanzen Hofmann GmbH in Langensendelbach . Its original apple is the Pinova , which is itself a cross between Golden Delicious and Clivia . This means that it is not just a mutant of the Pinova, but an independent variety.
