Scifresh is a cross between Royal Gala and Braeburn. It was developed in New Zealand as part of a collaboration between apple marketer ENZA, orchardists, and the Plant & Food Research.

This apple descends from the Cox's Orange Pippin, which is popular in England for its special taste. It is a hard, crisp apple, yet juicy. The color is flushes of red and maroon over shades of green, yellow and orange.
