  • Apple - Jazz

    26 Sep 2021 
    Grown in the cool climate of Tasmania, this apple is a favourite. Crisp, sweet and full of flavour. I suspect the variability in reviews relates to both personal taste preferences and wide variability in growing conditions.
  • Apple - Jazz

    Jazz apples are my favorite snacking apple. I prefer Jazz from New Zealand for their crispness and their great balance of tart and sweet over those from the US. Although the Jazz grown in the US can sometimes taste nearly the same as their Kiwi counterpart, the US Jazz tend to display less consistency in both texture and taste. Unlike some apple varieties like Honeycrisp, Jazz apples travel well.
  • Apple - Laxton's Superb

    20 Sep 2021 
    From our tree about 25 years old. Best eater I've ever tasted. Crops hugely every year. For some reason, it tastes best when peeled and sliced rather than just bitten into.
  • Apple - McIntosh

    This is the perfect apple. Excellent texture, balanced slightly tart flavor, and dazzling white flesh.
  • Apple - Sonya

    12 Sep 2021 
    I am not an apple eater because the skin is usually too tough and they are too acidic. This apple was PERFECT for me!
