The Instacart guide to Smitten apples
About Smitten apples
Smitten apples were developed in New Zeeland in 1995, but were not officially named until 2010. They are a mix of two classic New Zeeland varieties, Braeburn and Royal Gala, and two English ones, Falstaff and Fiesta. They are a result of a long search by a New Zeeland fruit company to come up with an apple variety that is not only juicy, sweet, and full of flavor, but is also firm enough to withstand bruising, transportation, and long-term storage.
Since their launch, they have enjoyed significant success in countries like the United Kingdom and Australia, but also in the United States. They are medium to large in size, and their round form often has ribs. Reddish blush and streaks are found all over their yellow skin, and their firm flesh is crisp and fine-grained. A bite out of a Smitten apple reveals its mix of sweet and acidic notes, with small hints of other flavors, such as wine, oranges, flowers, and cider.
Aside from being delicious, Smitten apples are also nutritious and healthy. A single apple has around 100 calories and many important nutrients, like vitamins A and C, fiber, calcium, and iron. While the best way to enjoy a Smitten apple is arguably eating it out of hand, several other applications also exist. You can mix them with peanut butter or cheese to prepare a light snack, use their sweetness to enhance various desserts, or even cook them alongside chicken or pork meals.
You can store Smitten apples for a fairly long time, as long as you keep them in a cool and dry place.
