Best Friggin Apple EVER.. the Ambrosia

WOW, you gotta try one if you haven't. It's perfect in every way. Like eating Candy. (Real Candy, not a hooker). I guess it evolved from several other varieties by mistake and perfection was found. I could have one for every meal , every day. My wife picked some up at Walmart by chance. And now I look for them every time but haven't seen them lately. Go try one and get back to me with your thoughts. Really ! You'll thank me as well as be eating something healthy for once. I googled and found a little info:

The Ambrosia apple is a home-grown original – not only is the variety a favourite among consumers, Ambrosias actually originated in British Columbia. In the early 1990s, the Mennell family in BC’s Similkameen Valley discovered a tree in Sally Mennell’s orchard which bore unusual apples.

Their orchard had previously been planted with Red Delicious and Golden Delicious, but they had replanted the area with Jonagold trees. A chance seedling grew up in one of the rows and the Mennells noticed that the fruit pickers that season seemed to really favour the apples on this unique tree. In fact, its fruit was stripped clean! The Mennells tried and loved the apples as well, and decided to try to produce more.

Once the existing tree had matured, they cut and grafted a few branches onto other trees to see if they would still grow the same apples. The procedure was a success, and Ambrosia was born. The Ambrosia apples have the general conical shape of their parents, Reds and Goldens, but their color, texture and taste are distinctly superior and unique.

Fruit of the Gods

Ambrosia apples have a distinct honeyed and slightly perfumed flavour. Aptly named Ambrosia, food of the Gods, they are a delight to look at, touch, bite into and savour. The skin is smooth, with a bright, almost iridescent pink blush over a creamy background. The flesh is tender and juicy, with a very fine, crisp texture. It is a sweet, low-acid apple with a pleasing aroma. When they’re sliced, they do not turn brown as quickly as other varieties, making them ideal for salads, fruit plates, and eating on their own. Because of its natural sweetness, this apple requires less sugar in baking than most other varieties used for cooking.

Because of this thread when i went to the grocery store today I looked for this apple.

They had about 20 different varieties, but not this one.

I think Granny Smith are the best for cooking.

I was shopping yesterday & I saw some ambrosia apples. It reminded me of this thread so, even though they were twice as expensive as any of the other apples, I thought I'd give it a shot. (You know me... I'm pretty open-minded about things)

I'm sorry to report that these apples are stupid. They are bland and not delicious at all. I can't imagine that anyone really thinks these are good and I feel like this has all been an elaborate scheme to make me waste money on shitty apples. Well done, assholes. Now I need to go buy some pink lady apples to get that crappy taste out of my mouth.

In closing, I'd like to say **** YOU, ambrosia apple people. **** you right square in the face!

Hogfarmer must have seen Johnny Football chowing down on an ambrosia once. Gave him the sort of apple boner a man just can't shake.

Agree with the Pink Lady and Honeycrisp posts from earlier...Jazz apples are in that top tier too. There aren't any other good apples, and I don't need there to be.
