Envy apples are a round variety with striated, ruby red skin with green undertones. They have a crisp, sweet white flesh that will stay pure white for up to 10 hours before succumbing to oxidation and turning brown. Envy apples have what are known as lenticels, or small pores, which allow gases to pass between the skin and the flesh of a fruit. The lenticels appear as specks on the Envy apple; the more specks, the sweeter the apple.
Envy apples are available almost year-round from sources in New Zealand, Chile, and the United States.
The large Envy™ apple (species Malus domestica) is a recent New Zealand cross between the Braeburn and Royal Gala apple, developed and marketed by the Oppenheimer Group. It has the same parentage as the Jazz apple, from the same producer.
Apples are a nutritious snack or meal ingredient because they contain several important nutrients in a low-calorie package. One medium apple has less than 100 calories, along with 17% of the daily recommended value of dietary fiber and 14% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C. Apples also contain small amounts of quercetin, boron, and Vitamin B.
The sweet taste and crunch of an Envy apple makes it perfect for fresh out-of-hand eating. The flavor also lends well to cakes and pies.
