    The U.S. Apple Association shares facts and recipe ideas for the Ambrosia apple.

    Female Speaker: This is the Ambrosia apple, and it has a fitting name. In Greek mythology ambrosia refers to food or drink for the Gods. I am optimistic you will love the Ambrosia's tender, sweet, heavenly taste. Ambrosias have smooth, yellow, pink skin, a floral aroma and slight honey flavor, perfect for snacks, salads and baking. This apple is available fall through winter. Try an ambrosia in one of my favorite snack ideas; apple nachos. Layer Ambrosia slices and drizzle with old-fashioned caramel dip, crushed walnuts, and crunchy chocolate chips. It's not a myth; Ambrosias are one of the most all-around enjoyable apples.
