Naliv Belyi

 

an old Russian summer variety of apple; it is called the Pudovshchina in the Trans-Volga Region. The slightly ribbed fruit is medium-size or a bit smaller; they are round, conical, or, less frequently, broadly ovate. The greenish yellow skin gradually becomes lighter; the pulp is white or greenish white and was a fine grain. The taste is very pleasant and winy. The apples, which ripen in August, are used fresh. They transport and keep rather poorly. The average yield per tree is 60–90 kg. The Naliv Belyi is grown successfully in the RSFSR, Kazakh SSR, Kirghiz SSR, Uzbek SSR, Tadjik SSR, Turkmen SSR, Lithuanian SSR, and Estonian SSR.
