A cross between Golden Delicious and two heirloom varieties from Europe – Cox’s Orange Pippin and the Duchess of Oldenburg, Piñata is a high sugar, high acid apple with a satisfyingly juicy crunch, classic apple flavors, and a unique tropical twist.
Beyond its snazzy name and heirloom heritage, Piñata is one of the most versatile apples available today. The crisp and juicy texture makes it great for eating fresh out-of-hand, while its ability to resist browning when sliced means it’s an ideal choice for fresh salads. Piñata has the same thin skin and fine-grained texture as a Golden Delicious, which means it doesn’t break down when exposed to high temperatures for cooking. To find recipes, click here.
