Eve apples are most distinguishable by their bright red color. The flesh is white and firm, with a delicate and refreshing flavor.
Eve apples are available in spring.
Eve apples are a new variety of New Zealand apple (Malus domestica). They are most closely related to the Braeburn apple. They grow well in the cooler, more mountainous regions of Australia and New Zealand.
Apples are a healthy part of the diet since they are low in calories and high in nutritious vitamins and minerals. They contain high levels of Vitamin C, particularly just underneath the skin, along with soluble and insoluble fiber, potassium, and Vitamin A.
Eve apples are meant primarily for fresh eating. They are slow to brown when cut and exposed to air, so they are great added raw to salads or cut up into slices for snacks. They can also be cooked, since their firm texture holds up well when heated. Eve apples make a great tasting juice as well, and are sold juiced in several countries. They store well under proper conditions, and should be kept in the refrigerator until eaten.
Eve apples are part of the fruit growing tradition of New Zealand and Australia. Heartland Fruit New Zealand, which developed this apple, is owned by four families of second- and third-generation orchardists. Two of these families have been involved in growing apples for over a hundred years.
As with many other apple varieties both historic and more modern, Eve apples were discovered by accident in an orchard. A New Zealand orchardist at Easton Apples found a tree growing bright red fruits that were promising as a new type of apple to bring to market. Heartland Fruit Company then developed and marketed Eve. Today Eves are grown by Aussie Orchardists in Australia.
