Ambrosia is a yellow apple with an almost fluorescent pink and orange-red blush. Its juicy, cream-colored flesh is sweet with low acid and offers a soft crunch much like Golden Delicious. It is a good juicing or fresh-eating apple; its flavor is somewhat pear-like. Its flesh does turn brown as quickly as other apples so it works great for salads. Ambrosia is not noted for storing well. It is generally ready for harvest in late September.
