About Pinova apples

Pinova apples are crisp, juicy apples. This variety of apple is relatively new in the United States, coming over from Germany in 2000. It's a cross between a Golden Delicious, Cox's Orange Pipping, and Duchess of Oldenburg, with a creamy white flesh and a sweet flavor with some tropical undertones. The skin has a dark red blush and yellow color that comes from the Cox's Orange Pippin, while the aroma and flavor come from the Golden Delicious. The tartness comes from the Duchess of Oldenburg.

This apple was first called the Corail and trademarked as the Pinata by Stemilt Growers in Washington state. Stemilt now has exclusive rights to the Pinova in the United States, but some growers in New England purchased rights to the name and can sell them as Pinova or Corail.

Pinova apples are a top choice in many chefs' kitchens because it has a good balance of sugar and acid with lots of juice. They hold up well when cooked, making them ideal for baking and pies, and since the structure can withstand high heat without breaking down, you can cook it in a variety of ways in addition to baking. Pair them with pork to add a little sweetness to dinner or slice them into thin pieces and add to a salad. They are also a delicious snack when eaten fresh. Pinova apples are slow to brown so you can take your time eating them.

FAQs About Pinova Apples

Freezing apples is a great way to make them last beyond the growing season. Keeping bags of apples in your freezer means you always have what you need to make dessert or dinner. There are a few simple steps needed to freeze apples. First, peel, core, and slice your Pinova apples. Dip the slices in a mixture of fresh lemon juice and water to prevent browning. Lay them on a baking sheet and place them in the freezer until frozen. Freezing the slices before putting them in a bag prevents them from sticking together. Put the frozen slices in a freezer bag, making sure to remove all the air. Label the bag and then place it in the freezer for up to six months. 

Pinova apples are excellent for poaching, juicing, canning, and making apple sauce. Be sure to clean the outside before eating or using it for baking. 

You can use these apples to make apple cake or apple crisp, but they will also work well in savory dishes. The tropical flavor pairs well with butternut squash and is perfect with pork. The sweetness is also delicious in salads, and they will look pretty in your presentation since they take a while to start turning brown.
