With a size similar to that of a tennis ball, it has a reddish colour with greenish yellow flesh inside. Its origin stems from the apple clone, developed by Japanese researchers between Red Delicious and Ralls Janet apples. Its commercialisation is little more than 50 years old, but it has become one of the most popular varieties. Its expiration date is longer than other varieties.
Its flesh is more juicy and crunchy than other varieties and its sugars are quickly assimilated by the body. Rich in fibre, it helps regulating the stomach and its load of vitamin E. This gives it antioxidant properties, which provide stability to red blood cells. It also helps to lower fever thanks to its antiferic properties.
It is harvested from August to January, but this variety can be refrigerated for almost 5 months.
