Welcome to Ambrosia Apples
About Ambrosia apples: The Ambrosia apple is no ordinary apple. Aptly named after the mythical “food of the gods”, this stunning apple, born from a chance seedling, is a delight for all the senses. When you first set eyes on the Ambrosia apple, you will be drawn to its glossy, bi-coloured good looks. It has an attractive conical shape and smooth, flawless skin with a bright, almost fluorescent pink blush over a creamy-yellow background. As you draw closer, you will become aware of its distinct perfumed aroma. Then, as you bite into the Ambrosia apple’s tender, juicy flesh with its fine crisp texture, the apple’s honeyed flavour will saturate your taste buds, leaving you refreshed and satisfied.
Little wonder that this sweet, low-acid apple consistently rates at the top in taste-tests and sensory panels, and is a hit with both children and adults alike. The new variety of apple was named Ambrosia, which in Greek mythology means food of the gods. The Ambrosia apple was registered in 1993 and over the past 20 years, it has grown in popularity and is now available for purchase worldwide. Ambrosia is a low-acid apple, which makes it easier for kids and older people to digest, it is slow to brown and is great in salads, baking and main dishes.
