`Ariane' is a new apple cultivar carrying the Vf gene of resistance to Venturia inaequalis. It was derived from a cross made in 1979 at INRA in Angers, France between two advanced selections. The seed parent was a hybrid between the Vf cultivars `Florina' and `Prima' and the pollen parent was derived from an open pollination of `Golden Delicious'. `Ariane' matures during the same period as `Golden Delicious'. `Ariane' fruit has blushed bright red skin, with 75% of the fruit surface colored. It is medium sized. The flesh is firm and crisp; it has excellent flavor and eating quality with a high level of sugar and acid. Storage ability is long. Trees have to be thinned intensively, chemically and manually, to get good size fruit. `Ariane' shows low susceptibility to powdery mildew and fire blight. `Ariane' has been selected by the SARL (Ltd) NOVADI and the S.A.S. POMALIA to be developed as the first cultivar of a “Les Naturianes” series. Since 2002, about 95,000 trees of `Ariane' have been planted in France.
