envy apples

i found these at foodland liliha, and they are the best apples i have ever eaten. crisp and an aggresively sweet taste, with almost a light honey finish.

apparently they are a cross between braeburn and royal gala apples, and come from new zealand.

anyone else tried these?

  1. no, but now that you mention them I think i'll go find some and have a try. sounds good. best apples I ever had were at the morning market one crisp spring morning in takayama, japan.

        They used to have it @ Don Quijote... good to know that Foodland carries it. Will certainly pay them a visit.


      2. they also don't brown quickly after they're exposed to air.

        1. they're back in season. I got a few from both foodland beretania and times liliha.

          perfect with brie cheese.

          the one I am eating as I type is very crisp, but less sweet sweet than others in the batch. it's fragrant, floral, kind of reminding me of very mild green apple gum. I don't like it as much as the honeyed taste of the other envy apples in the bunch I got, but it's still a cut above most of the other varieties.
