My pick of the week is Kanzi apples. Kanzi is my favourite amongst the many new apples we now grow in Australia. Developed in Belgium, they are a natural cross between Gala and Braeburn, very similar parentage to the Jazz apple. The season runs from mid-March to late July. There are now 75 growers farming the variety, I think it is a very good apple with the best of the best of them coming from Batlow, an area that I have bought many of the finest apples we sell for nearly 50 years. They are a naturally large apple, very dense, with a really crisp texture and excellent flavour.
HOW TO PICK
Choose firm fruit - the flesh of the apple should not easily give way to finger pressure.
HOW TO STORE
To keep your apples fresher for longer, store them in the fridge.
