What makes Envy™ Apples different from the rest?

envy logo

Envy™ Apples were born in New Zealand using natural plant-breeding methods by cross-pollinating Braeburn apples with Royal Gala apples. They have since planted trees in Washington state and Chile. Envy™ Apples resist browning longer than their peers. They are providing a prize package for one #FreshTastyValentines winner that will include Envy apples, an apple corer, and more.

I found these apples to be crisp and not too hard. This variety holds up well in applesauce.
