Ambri apples are medium in size and red-blushed in color, with faint stripes. They are more oblong and conical than round. Their flesh is crispy and aromatic, and sweet. The tall and broad trees produce a large number of apples.
Ambri apples are available beginning in the early to mid-fall.
Ambri apples are unusual in that they are India's only indigenous apple. Although other apples have been introduced to India, these have been growing in the Himalayan regions of India for much longer. This variety should not be confused with the Lal-Ambri, a newer variety that was developed from a cross of Ambri and Red Delicious.
Apples such as the Ambri contain Vitamin A, Vitamin K, and small amounts of many minerals. They are particularly high in Vitamin C and dietary fiber.
Ambris are considered a good dessert variety because of their sweetness. Make them into sauces, pies, or other baked goods. One of the selling points of the Ambri is that is has a long shelf life under the right conditions. Store them in the refrigerator for a month or more, or on the counter for a week or two.
This apple was long popular in India, but fewer Ambri trees are now grown there. Starting in the 1960s, imported apples replaced the Ambri. Today, there is a movement to reintroduce the Ambri back to Kashmir, and regain its former popularity.
Ambri apples have historically been grown only in the Himilayan regions of India. Ambri apple farms are located in Kashmir, particularly the Shopian area. India exports only small quantities of apples, so Ambris are rare in the United States.
