Ambrosia™ Apples

When an apple is named after the mythical ‘food of the gods’, you know it’s going to be a special apple.

About

After becoming a global sensation in the apple world, Ambrosia™ was added to our Montague family of apples in 2016 and enjoyed its first season on supermarket shelves in 2020.

This intensely sweet, juicy and aromatic apple is known for its large size, crisp texture, perfumed aroma and honeyed flavour.

Keep Ambrosia™ chilled in the fridge for a cool, refreshing snack.

Flavour

This honey flavoured apple satisfies all senses from its smooth appearance, distinct perfumed aroma.

Ambrosia™ apple is a true delight for the taste buds. Its unique sweetness resembles the rich and delicate taste of honey. With a crisp and juicy texture, this apple variety offers a delicious and refreshing snacking experience that is sure to please apple enthusiasts.

Texture

Ambrosia™ offers a light, crisp texture.

The Ambrosia™ apple boasts a delightful texture that is both crisp and juicy. With each bite, you’ll experience a satisfying crunch followed by a burst of juiciness. Its flesh is tender and smooth, making it a pleasure to eat. The combination of texture and flavor creates a truly enjoyable apple-eating experience.

Seasonality

Thriving in the summer and autumn sunshine, Ambroisa™ is picked and available from late March to late October each year. The combination of late summer and early autumn sunshine contributes to the development of Ambrosia™ apples’ exceptional taste and colour.

Once they are picked, these apples can thrive throughout the summer and autumn seasons, soaking up the warm sunshine. Their high sugar content and firm, crisp texture make them a refreshing treat during hot summer days. As the days grow shorter and cooler, Ambrosia™ apples continue to ripen, developing their signature red-blushed skin and sweet, aromatic flavor. Whether enjoyed fresh or used in a variety of culinary creations, Ambrosia™ apples are a true delight, bringing the taste of sunshine to every bite.

Growers

Ambrosia™ apple trees have been a delightful addition to the Montague orchard. First planted in Australia in 2016, Ambrosia™ is grown across our apple growing network in Yarra Valley (VIC), Batlow (NSW), Adelaide Hills (SA), Stanthorpe (QLD) and Tamar and Huon Valley (TAS).

These trees produce a popular and flavorful apple variety known as the Ambrosia™ apple. With a distinct sweet and tangy taste, Ambrosia™ apples are a favorite among fruit enthusiasts. The trees themselves are medium-sized and can reach a height of about 15 to 20 feet.

They are characterised by their beautiful pinkish-white blossoms in the spring, which transform into medium-sized, red-blushed fruits in the fall. Ambrosia™ apple trees require well-drained soil and full sun exposure to thrive. With the proper care and maintenance from the Montague family, these trees will provide bountiful harvests for years to come.
