Ambrosia has a distinct honeyed and slightly perfumed flavour. This crisp, sweet, and aromatic apple has a combination of red stripes over a creamy yellow background that produces an attractive pink blush. The fine-grained, cream-coloured flesh is slow to oxidize, making this apple a great choice for fruit trays, salads, and fresh displays. Naturally sweet, Ambrosias require very little sugar when used for cooking
Granny Smith apples have a tart-tangy, crisp flavour. Bright green skin. Great for eating out-of-hand and a very good all-purpose apple. Its ability to retain flavour makes it a good choice for cooking
Jonagold is high quality American apple, developed in the 1940s. As its name suggests, this is a cross between a Jonathan and a Golden Delicious. It is quite widely grown, and unusually for a Golden Delicious cross, is not limited to the warm apple regions, although it is not often found in the UK. Jonagold is a large apple, and makes a substantial snack. If you are struggling to eat your 5 portions of fruit and veg per day, this can help! The large size is a good clue that this is a triploid apple variety, with 3 sets of genes. As a result it is a poor pollinator of other apple varieties, and needs two different nearby compatible pollinating apple varieties. Golden Delicious is well-known as a good pollinator of other apple varieties, but cannot pollinate Jonagold. The colouring is yellow of Golden Delicious, with large flushes of red. This is a crisp apple to bite into, with gleaming white flesh. The flavour is sweet but with a lot of balancing acidity - a very pleasant apple.
Good snacking apple
