About the Ambrosia apple

Ambrosia apples are a newer variety to the market, but they’re gaining popularity around the world. In the 1990s a chance seedling was discovered in the orchard of Wilfrid and Sally Mennell at Cawston, British Columbia Canada, and quickly became a national favorite.

This attractive, medium-sized apple has high gloss skin and colored 70% to 90% bright red blush with broad faint stripes on a cream to yellow background.

A perfectly ripe Ambrosia apple has floral notes like wildflower honey. These apples are exceptionally low in acid. They won’t taste tart or tangy, just mellow, and sweet.
