Sometimes the best things in life happen by chance, like Ambrosia apples for instance. In 1987 in British Columbia, Canada a chance seedling grew into a juicy, mildly sweet apple with notes of pear. Most chance seedlings are not viable for commercial production, but Ambrosia (meaning Fruit of the Gods) was different. Ambrosia apples are notable in their appearance, with a bi-colored exterior, fluorescent pink hues over creamy yellow pigment and a conical shape. When slicing and biting into the Ambrosia, expect to discover a crisp, fine-grained flesh that remains white even when sliced. This apple is for fans of a delicately sweet taste experience.
