New Zealand Jazz Apple

Another new and interesting apple variety I found at Loblaws, for $1.99/lb, essentially $1 for each apple, is the Jazz, which comes from New Zealand (but also grown in France and Washington, USA). It is a cross between a Braeburn and a Gala apple. You can see the red/maroon colouring broken up by smaller areas of yellow or green or orange. This is a good-tasting apple, crisp, juicy and dense, but be careful, as it is a solid apple, and sensitive teeth may have an issue biting into it. I would say that I would buy this apple again, if it were comparable in price to the more ubiquitous supermarket apples.
