Sonya is a medium to large, conical apple like its Gala and Red Delicious parents, but it has reddish-orange color over yellow skin. Its crisp flesh is aromatic and sweet. It is good for all purposes, especially fresh eating, and it stores well.
Named for the daughter of the grower who developed it, it was introduced as Sonya in 2002.
