The Ambrosia apple was a chance seedling discovered by the Mennell family in Cawston, British Columbia. Its parentage remains unknown, but is thought to be a cross of Starking Delicious and Golden Delicious because those were the varieties of trees growing in the orchard it was discovered.
A glossy, bi-colored apple, the Ambrosia has an attractive conical shape and smooth, flawless skin. It is has a bright, almost fluorescent pink blush over a creamy-yellow and green background. The apple has tender, juicy flesh with a fine, crisp texture, and its honeyed flavor will saturate your taste buds, leaving you refreshed and satisfied. Ambrosia is also a low-acid apple, which makes it easier for kids and older people to digest.
