Now here is a cool name for an apple, Jazz! I found this cool apple on display at the Produce Station in Ann Arbor, MI. The apple’s color is mainly red with patches of yellow/green. It is a cross between two popular apples, the Gala (technically the Royal Gala) and the Braeburn, which is easy to see by just looking at the Jazz. When I cut the apple open I discovered an off-white color.
The apple was created by grower in New Zealand. The apple is licensed under the ENZA brand and can be found growing in New Zealand, France, Chile, and the state of Washington. It is a late maturing variety, which is why I am enjoying it here in early March.
My Experience with this Apple (Rating Scale 1-10)
Tartness : 3
Apple Flavor: 6
Overall Feeling: It is crisp, sweet apple. It is a lot in flavor like a Gala, but is a firmer apple. This apple is a good out of hand eating up, and seems to hold up well in baking applications. It’s sweetness would make it a choice in making applesauce that you wouldn’t have to add sugar to.
