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

    Female Speaker: Get ready for the Cameo apple. Discovered as a chance seedling in a Washington State Red Delicious Orchard about 30 years ago, it's now available in supermarkets nationwide. With bright red stripes on an orange background, it actually has a brighter, more lemony flavor than its Red Delicious cousin. Firm, sweet, and one of my favorite apples for slicing up and serving as a snack. They are available late fall through early spring.

    Pair sliced Cameo with healthy California walnuts for a perfect afternoon or morning snack. But like you, I get frustrated when sliced apples start browning. Here is a quick tip to slow down the browning process, dip your apples in vitamin C fortified 100% apple juice just after slicing. It works for Cameos and all varieties. This Cameo is all yours.
