Anyone "jazzed" about new apple varieties?

Ruth Lafler | Dec 14, 2006 11:07 PM

I bought a new-to-me variety of apple the other day: the Jazz(tm). It's a new apple from New Zealand (although the one I bought was grown in Washington), produced by crossing Royal Gala and Braeburn varietals. To me, it combines the best aspects of both: the firm, crisp texture of a Braeburn with the strong apple flavor of the Gala. Anyone else tried it? Anyone else have any other "new" apples they've discovered this apple season?

(And does anyone even say "jazzed" anymore?)
