Ambrosia is a cultivar from British Columbia found in the early 1990.  A medium to large mostly glossy red colour with yellow patches that is refreshing and pleasantly crisp with fine-grained flesh. It's very sweet with very little acidity. Ambrosia is an apple that naturally doesn't brown quickly after being sliced, making it perfect for salads or to pack slices in school lunches. 

The skin of an apple contains a good amount of nutrients and the thin non waxy skin of these apples make them pleasant to eat without peeling.

Ambrosia apples keep very well in the refrigerator and are also a versatile cooking apple.
