Ambrosia™

Snow White’s apple

It’s almost impossible to resist Ambrosia™ apples with their bright red cheeks! Ambrosia™ apples are not only beautiful, but also very aromatic: Thanks to their sweet and distinctive taste with delicate honey flavor they are popular with both young and old.

The Origin

A beautiful and tasty chance seedling

Ambrosia™ was born as a chance seedling in the Canadian state of British Columbia. At the beginning of the 1990s, Sally and Wilfried Mennell discovered that one of their trees in Similkameen Valley produced other apples than all the other ones…

This bi-colored variety with bright red top color on a yellow base is the result of a natural mutation of a red apple and a yellow one.

The Taste

Simply irresistible  

Ambrosia™ is a very delicious, crunchy and aromatic apple with numerous advantages. This variety characterized by its high sugar content and little acidity is very juicy and has a sweet, distinctive taste with notes of honey and nectar, which makes Ambrosia™ so unique.  

The Cultivation

An ideal habitat

Ambrosia™ apples need cool nights and warm, sunny days with little precipitation and much sunshine to fully develop their organoleptic characteristics and unique appearance. These particular climatic conditions allow the apples to ripen more slowly and to thus become crunchier and more aromatic. Ambrosia™ apples have found an ideal habitat in Piedmont and Val Venosta, the only production areas in Italy, where they are sun-kissed and gently caressed by the wind.

Ambrosia™ apples are exclusively commercialized in Europe by Gruppo Rivoira and Val Venosta Apple.

Ambrosia™ apples are harvested between the end of September and the beginning of October and available from autumn to spring.
