The Instacart guide to Ambrosia apple products
About Ambrosia apples
The Ambrosia apple was first grown in the early 1990s. Sally and Wilfrid Mennell discovered this apple in their orchard in the Similkameen Valley region of British Columbia. The apple had a unique taste and texture that was unlike anything else in their orchard or anything they had tasted before. What was once a one-of-a-kind apple almost 30 years ago is now grown across the globe.
The Ambrosia apple was patented after its discovery, meaning only certain people could grow Ambrosia trees. The patent ran its course in Canada, and the United States, meaning farms across Canada and the United States can now grow Ambrosia apples without a patent, making this type of apple more popular at supermarkets across the country. The production of Ambrosia apples is closely examined by the Okanagan Plant Improvement Company (PICO), meaning Ambrosia apples must meet strict color and taste standards in order to be sold.
Ambrosia apples are bi-colored, meaning they belong to more than one color family. The base color of this medium-sized apple is yellow, but they have a red, glossy coloration overtop. Ambrosia apples have an incredibly sweet taste that is often compared to honey and pears. This type of apple is also low in acidity, meaning there is no bitterness or tangy flavor. Additionally, ambrosia apples have thin skin and are crisp and dense in texture.
