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.

FAQs About Smitten Apples

As mentioned, Smitten apples have a crisp and crunchy texture that sets them apart from other apple varieties. However, the best way to preserve that crispness can be applied to virtually any type of apple and mainly consists of keeping them in a cool and dark place. If you want to store them for longer periods of time, however, the best thing you can do is usually to wrap them in separate plastic bags because, as the old saying goes, one bad apple can spoil the whole bunch. 

If you want to store them sliced, the easiest way to avoid them turning brown is usually to spray them with a bit of lemon juice.
