Flavor: A mango tropical-ness mixed with a Golden Delicious
Approximate Ripening: Mid-late September
Trivia: Created in 1965 at the Institut für Obstforschung of Dresden–Pillnitz in Saxony, Germany, and introduced to the world market in 1986. It is a combination of Golden Delicious and Clivia.
Notes: This sweet apple has strong tropical overtones; indeed, you can describe the flavor as mango-like. It’s a great change-of-pace apple when you’re looking for something different from the same-old, same-old. Place a few of these pale-skinned beauties in a bowl and breathe in their light floral aroma, almost like a bowl of apple-shaped roses!
