The comprehensive resource for apples and orchards

Pacific Rose™ apple



Pacific Rose™ is a high-quality dessert apple derived from Gala and Splendor, which has become available in supermarkets from around 2005.  Visually it mostly resembles Splendor.  It is primarily an apple for eating fresh.

Pacific Rose™ is the marketing name, the actual variety name is Scirose - it is part of the same breeding programme from ENZA that brought us Jazz (cultivar name: Scifresh).  The marketing name seems to nicely fit the apple.

My Safeway used to carry them but I haven't seen them for several years. This apple blew me away it was so good. Where can I find them in or near Napa, CA. Thanks, JimD

WOW! I hate apples--that is until I tasted a Pacific Rose. This is like eating candy. Sweet and crunchy and so good!

I was excited to try the Pacific Rose because I love its cousin, the Jazz. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. This apple basically tastes like a Gala to me. Bland overall. Definitely not as sweet as the Jazz. It's certainly a nice looking fruit. But it won't be my first choice for eating.

I got this apple from the local Walmart and wish I had gotten more of them. The Pacific Rose is one of the sweetest best tasting apples I have had. I would love to plant a tree in my backyard

I found these in the grocwery store last week and they are very good. If you like Honeycrisp, these are a great late season alternative.

I got these Pacific Rose variety at Walmart. Normally, I don't like sweet apples and prefer the tartness of a Macintosh Granny Smith, but the taste of these is very good, and the consistency is amazing -- like perfect, out-of-this world.

This is by far my favourite new apple variety. Only one small local grocer ever has them. We love them.

I served this apple last night to guests, and had a couple people ask what kind of apple it was. I think that this is my favorite apple by far!

This is the sweetest apple I have ever had hands down. It truly is a dessert apple. Put it in the freezer for 15 minutes before eating for the most pleasurable experience. Juicy, Sweet, Crunch!
