Divine® apple was bred by Delbard Nurseries in France. According to Specialty Produce, the apple is a cross of golden delicious, grive rouge, and florina apples and was specifically bred for disease resistance.
The apples are slightly elongated and are medium to large in size. The colour is red with a yellow background.
The flesh is pale cream to white with a crisp crunchy and firm texture.
The apple is juicy and sweet with moderate acidity.
It’s best eaten fresh in salads or as a snack.
It is best stored in the refrigerator crisper where it will develop more flavour.
Divine® is primarily grown and marketed by Heartland Fruit in New Zealand. (America Fruit)
The apples available in the late spring through fall. In Canada, you can find them at the Zehrs supermarket.
