Looking for a breath of fresh air? Take a bite out of the Ambrosia apple. Its flavor is best described as refreshing with floral notes and a pleasant crisp, fine-grained flesh. It’s very sweet with very little acidity.
Ambrosia is an apple that naturally doesn’t brown quickly after being sliced, making it perfect for snacks or salads. You can cook with it too!
Is It In Season
Ambrosia means “Food of the Gods” and this delicately sweet apple is quite the treat. Ambrosia apples were discovered in 1987 as a chance seedling growing on the Mennell family’s orchard in Cawston, British Columbia, Canada. Because it just appeared growing in nature, the apple’s parentage is unknown. Golden Delicious and Starking Delicious are thought to be its parents because both apples were growing nearby the discovery site.
