Eve apples are most distinguishable by their bright red skin. Inside, the flesh is white and firm, and produces plenty of juice when pressed. The flavor is delicately sweet and refreshing, balanced out with tartness similar to a Braeburn.
Eve apples are available spring through summer.
Eve apples are a modern variety of Malus domestica from New Zealand that stand out because of their bright red skin and resistance to turning brown when cut. They are most closely related to the Braeburn apple and share some similarities.
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 potassium, boron, and Vitamin A. One medium apple also contains about 17% of the daily recommended value of dietary fiber, which is an important nutrient for proper digestion.
Eve apples are excellent for fresh eating. They are slow to oxidize and turn brown when cut and exposed to air, so they are great added raw to salads or cut up into slices for snacks. The flavors pair well with balsamic vinegar and feta. 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. IN the early 2000s, 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. In Australia, Eves are grown by Aussie Orchardists and distributed by Montague. The Eve apple grows well in cooler, more mountainous regions such as Australia and New Zealand, reflecting its origin.
