The Instacart guide to Koru apples

About Koru apples

Koru apples are a crossbreed between Fuji and Braeburn varieties. This variety was discovered as a chance seedling in Nelson, New Zealand, in 1994. Koru apples were commercialized in 2013 and are widely grown in New Zealand and the U.S.

Koru apple skin is primarily orange-red over a gold-green background. These medium-sized fruits have a squat shape and a bit of russet around their stem. On the interior, they have a light cream to yellow flesh. With each bite, you immediately experience its crisp, juicy, and sweet flesh. Koru apples have a slightly acidic taste and aromatic notes that range from honey to vanilla, orange, and spice scents. On the inside, they have flat tear-drop-shaped dark brown seeds.

FAQs About Koru Apples

Practice these simple tips at home. For instance, don't slice your Koru apples unless you consume them immediately since they eventually decolorize due to oxidation. Always wrap Koru apples individually since they produce ethylene, making surrounding fruits ripen faster. They easily absorb smells from other strongly scented foods such as onions, so always store them in a separate compartment.

These apples are ideal for baking since they maintain their shape and don't get mushy during the process. They pair great with spices such as cinnamon and brown sugar, making them exceptionally good for pie recipes. You can enjoy Koru apples fresh or cooked. Snack on Koru apples or incorporate them into salads since they are slow to brown. They also are very crisp and work well in salads and sandwiches.

Store whole Koru apples in the fridge unwashed and where there is enough humidity for them to remain firm. Here they can last about four to six weeks. 

Once you have sliced them, soak them in salty water for 10 to 15 to prevent discoloration due to oxidation. Rinse, then refrigerate or freeze. Sliced Koru apples stay refrigerated for up to five days and in the freezer for a maximum of eight months. When made into an apple sauce, they stay up to 10 days refrigerated and two months in the freezer. Refrigerate Koru apple pie for up to five days.
