|Hybrid parentage||'Braeburn' × 'Royal Gala'|
|Origin||New Zealand, 1985|
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 institute. The original cross was made in 1985 on trees at Goddard Lane, Havelock North, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. It launched commercially in April 2004.
It is hard and crisp but juicy. The colour is flushes of red and maroon over shades of green, yellow and orange.
Growers produce Jazz apples under licence in New Zealand, UK, United States, Australia, France, Chile, Italy, Switzerland, and Austria. Grown in the northern and southern hemispheres, it is available all year round.
Trees take between four and five years before they start to produce fruit.
