Smitten® apple was developed by the Plant and Food Research LTD of New Zealand. The plant and Food Research also developed the Apples Envy™, Jazz™ and Pacific Rose™.
Trials and tests for the variety started in 2005. Smitten was introduced to the United States in 2011 by Pegasus Premier Fruit. It’s developed by traditional breeding methods so is non GMO. (smittenapplecom)
The apple is sweet, aromatic with hints of tartness and a phenomenal and refreshing crunch. I have just had one with my oatmeal and yes, it’s very crunchy and refreshing.
It has a natural wild apple colouration and a yellow base with a cheeky blush.
