|Kanzi® ('Nicoter') apple|
|Hybrid parentage||Braeburn & Gala|
The Kanzi is the trademark name of the 'Nicoter' modern bred cultivar of domesticated apple which has been developed in Belgium by "Better3Fruits" and "Greenstar Kanzi Europe" (GKE) from a natural cross between a Gala apple and a Braeburn apple. Kanzi is Swahili for "hidden treasure".
The Kanzi apple has the same parentage as the Jazz from New Zealand and they are similar in taste and appearance. The texture of Jazz is harder. Tasters have voted for the Kanzi in preference to the Jazz. Kanzi is still also firm and fairly crisp, quite juicy, slightly sharp rather than sweet in taste, with a pleasant and mild flavor. It is mainly used for fresh consumption.
