Ambrosia is a relatively new cultivar of apple originating in British Columbiain the early 1990s. It is medium to large in size and has mostly red colouration, with yellow patches. It has cream-coloured, firm meat with a sweet, crisp, aromatic 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.

The Ambrosia strain was first cultivated by the Mennell family of Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, who discovered the apple growing in their orchard.

Parentage

The patent for Ambrosia 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.
