ambrosia Juicy with a mild sweetness


Ambrosia apples were discovered in 1987 as a chance seedling growing on the Mennell family's orchard in British Columbia, Canada. The parentage of the apple is Golden Delicious and Jonagold. Most chance seedlings aren’t viable for commercial production, but Ambrosia was different.

The name Ambrosia means "Food of the Gods" and fans will assert that the apple's delicate sweetness is quite the treat. Stemilt harvests its crop of organic Ambrosia apples in September.
