[nafex] bug resistant apple?

Hi everyone:

In my orchard of some 50 apple trees I have one that over the past 3 years 
has had no or very few worm or other bug damage even in years (like this one 
in which I did not spray) that the other apples are hit very hard.  This is 
my wife's favorite eating apple and is not a bad cooking apple either.  The 
variety is unknown to me as this was a fully developed orchard prior to me 
purchasing the property.  Can this be a bug resistant apple and can the 
properties be transferred to established trees (I don't see how) or perhaps 
onto rootstock to establish a more reduced labor organic orchard?
