‘Arisoo’ is a red apple (Malus ×domestica Borkh.) that ripens in early September. It was selected from a hybrid population of a cross between ‘Yoko’ (Cummins, 1991) and ‘Senshu’ (Soejima et al., 1998) in 2010 at the Apple Research Institute, National Institute of Horticultural and Herbal Science, Rural Development Administration, Republic of Korea, and commercially registered in 2013. The ‘Arisoo’ apple is of relatively premium fruit quality in terms of taste, fruit shape, and high red blush peel, even under high summer temperatures. The incidence of flesh browning was negligible in ‘Arisoo’ during cold storage and shelf life; therefore, ‘Arisoo’ apple is a highly important variety not only for fresh consumption but also for processing into products, such as juice and fresh-cut fruit. Overall, ‘Arisoo’ apple is a promising cultivar owing to its numerous potential applications, as well as its higher peel blushness.
