DESCRIPTION

Envy (Scilate) is a medium-to-large, conical apple, mostly red-orange over yellow skin, sometimes with prominent white lenticels. Its crispy, cream-colored flesh is moderately juicy. Its flavor is cotton-candy sweet, with hints of honey and vanilla. An all-purpose apple, its flesh is slow to brown, making it good in salads. It is a late-season apple, harvested in November when grown in the United States and Canada, and in June and July when grown in New Zealand.

HISTORY

Envy was first grown from a cross of Braeburn x Royal Gala in 1985 by Allan White of New Zealand. It was ready for commercial release as a managed variety in 2012.
