The RubyFrost was 10 years in the making and developed by Cornell University’s apple breeding program, along with the SnapDragon. It has the perfect balance of sweet and tart with a hearty crunch and crisp texture.

RubyFrost apples reach their peak flavor during the winter months, making it an excellent choice for warm seasonal dishes, both savory and sweet. It’s also the ultimate baking apple, due to its plump size.

RubyFrost is very high in Vitamin C and slow to turn brown.
