Product description

What is an Ambrosia apple?
The Ambrosia apple is an apple variety that was discovered by the Mennell family in Cawston, British Columbia. The original tree was a “chance” seedling, meaning that an apple dropped on the ground and a tree grew from one of the seeds. The parentage of Ambrosia remains unknown, but it may be a cross of Starking Delicious and Golden Delicious because those were the varieties of trees growing in that orchard. The original Ambrosia mother tree is still located in the Mennell’s orchard and the thousands of Ambrosia trees growing around the world are the result of branch clippings from that one tree.

What does the Ambrosia Apple look like and taste like?
Ambrosia is a glossy, bi-coloured apple. It has an attractive conical shape and smooth, flawless skin with 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 flavour 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.

What does the Ambrosia brand mean?
The true Ambrosia brand is an apple slice showing the one special seed that produced the Ambrosia mother tree. When you see this brand on an apple sticker, you are guaranteed the apple will be of the highest quality. In other words, that Ambrosia apple will have been harvested at the perfect time and stored under the very best conditions. The apple will be partially red over a yellow-green background and it will be crisp, juicy and flavourful when you bite in to it.

Why did we name the apple Ambrosia?
Ambrosia means “food of the Gods” – a perfect name for an extraordinary apple. The Ambrosia apple is a rare beauty that is a delight for all the senses.
Where are Ambrosia apples grown?
Ambrosia is the third most commonly grown apple variety in British Columbia, and is becoming increasingly popular as more and more growers plant it in their orchards. Ambrosia apples are also grown in many orchards in Ontario and Nova Scotia as well as in other countries such as the US, Europe, Chile, New Zealand and Australia. Because of its widespread popularity, Ambrosia apples are available to purchase in stores around the world.
