Kanzi Apples



Kanzi Apples are quite round, with deep red coloured tender skin, or orangish-red in actuality sometimes.

Inside, they have crispy, white juicy flesh that is almost fizzy in the mouth. They have a mild flavour, with a sweet taste with bit of sharpness.

The apples are fragrant.

Kanzi Apples are being grown in the Netherlands (as of 2010.) They first came on the market in Europe in 2006.

Cooking Tips

For fresh-eating.

History Notes

Kanzi Apples were developed in Belgium from a cross between Gala and Braeburn apples by the Greenstar Kanzi Europe (GKE) company, which holds the world-wide rights to it.

Language Notes

The "Kanzi" name was picked for marketing purposes; it means "happy treasure" in Swahili.
