Where To Buy Ambrosia Apples

Some apples like McIntosh have been around for hundreds of years. The Ambrosia variety was only discovered in the 1990s. The variety was discovered in British Columbia and quickly became favorite in Canada. Now, you can find the apple at orchards and grocery stores around the world.

Generally, high-acid apples like Granny Smith or Pink Lady are considered the ideal baking apples. Ambrosia apples are unusual in that they are low-acid, but still hold their shape when baked. This is due to their dense flesh. You can use Ambrosia apples in pies, cakes, and all sorts of baked goods.

Ambrosia apples require about 600 chill hours, meaning they grow well in moderately cool climates. That makes sense since they were developed in British Columbia. The variety is most commonly grown in Canada. As Ambrosia apples gain popularity, other countries have begun producing more and more of them.

Until just recently the Ambrosia variety was patented so only approved growers could produce the apples. Recently the United States and Canada patents expired, so more orchards are producing the fruit. Even so, Ambrosia variety is not as widely-grown as Red Delicious or Gala. You might not be able to find them at every grocery store, but you can always order them online.

Ambrosia apple trees grow in U.S. growing zones 4-8 and most parts of Canada. Plant these trees in full sun and well-draining soil. Ambrosia apples will thrive anywhere that Honeycrisp apples grow. They require enough chill hours in the fall to get their red color. If you live in an area that is warm in the late summer and early fall, consider growing a Fuji tree instead.

Ambrosia apples ripen in mid-September. Keep a careful eye on your fruit, because Ambrosia apples turn overripe very quickly. Try to pick all of the fruit within 7-14 days from when they become ripe. Wondering what to do with all those apples? Try making apple juice or cider to use up a large harvest.

Hi, I'm living in LA County and last spring went to my local Lowes and they had dwarf ambrosia trees to buy. I bought one not knowing about growing zones at the time and planted it in my backyard. So far it has been doing well. I wish I would have known better not to buy it, but why would lowes sell it in an area where it shouldn't grow? Doesn't make sense to me. Thank you for your post.

I look for Ambrosia apples at my local market every year since being introduced. The ones I purchased today (Friday November 13th), are very crisp. If I recall correctly, they are available for the better part of the year. I truly believe that those available at the beginning of the year are quite sweeter. Living in Southern California we are not blessed with the proper growing conditions or I would have my own tree. I will then continue looking for them at my favorite local market.

Ambrosia trees are hard to find as the growing restrictions just lifted a couple years ago. Golden Delicious apples are similar and sold online from most nurseries including Stark Brothers, so that could be an option to look into!

Ambrosia originates from western Canada and as with most modern varieties, production and quality are closely-controlled by the brand owners- PICO (Okanagan Plant Improvement Company) in western Canada. New plantings are also being established in Washington State in the USA, and in the Piedmont region of Italy. Although Canada is usually considered as a cold-climate growing region, the Similkameen and Okanagan valleys of southern British Columbia are semi-arid and apples are grown alongside grape vines and other warm-climate crops.

The fruit is medium to large, weighing about 215 grams (0.474 lb), and has mostly red, glossy colouration, with yellow patches. It has cream-coloured, firm meat with a sweet flavour reminiscent of pear and low acidity. 'Ambrosia' harvest is mid to late season. Trees are hardy and no major disadvantages have yet been identified.[2][3] These apples flower in mid to late season, and are in flower group 4.[clarification needed][4]

Ambrosia is most common in British Columbia, where it was discovered, and is the third most-produced apple in the province. It is also being produced in Ontario and Nova Scotia, as well as many other places around the world.[5]

The patent[6] provides additional background. Parentage is suspected to be 'Starking Delicious' 'Golden Delicious' because those apples existed in the orchard where the 'Ambrosia' was discovered growing.

Produce Sharing allows you to share your produce discoveries with your neighbors and the world! Is your market carrying green dragon apples? Is a chef doing things with shaved fennel that are out of this world? Pinpoint your location annonymously through the Specialty Produce App and letothers know about unique flavors that are around them.

When McDougall received its exclusive license in 2005, the existing U.S. growers were grandfathered in with the number of trees they had in the ground. All but one have their fruit packed at McDougall, which now has about 25 outside growers delivering Ambrosia but produces most of its Ambrosia apples on its own orchards.

Michael Bechtel, general manager of Summerland Varieties Corporation, expects to see increasing production of the variety after the plant protections expire, particularly in British Columbia where growers can receive financial incentives for updating their orchards through a provincial replant program.

Ambrosia is an apple variety originating from British Columbia, Canada, when it was discovered in the early 1990s. It's believed to be a cross between Golden Delicious and Jonagold. The apples are medium to large in size, while the skin is golden-yellow with pink and red blushes. The flesh is light yellow in color and its texture is crisp, tender, and juicy. The flavors are sweet with low acidity and notes of honey. Available in the fall, Ambrosia apples are usually used in the preparation of cakes, muffins, pies, and tarts, but they're also often used raw, sliced thinly and added to salads or burgers.
