Florina which is also called Querina, is a French cultivar of domesticated apple, that has combined traits of the Jonathan, Golden Delicious and Rome Beauty apples, and was developed in Angers, France by the "Station de Recherches d'Arboriculture Fruitiere". Although developed in France its ancestry is entirely American.

Florina bears medium to large fruit, skin very attractive, purple red covering almost completely the yellow background. Flesh is medium firm and aromatic, a blend of sweet and tart, uses mainly for fresh eating. Fruits keeps well for approximately three months. As most apples it is self-incompatible and needs out-cross pollination, Florina is a good pollinator for other.
