Tentation® delblush is a new commercial apple variety (also known as Delblush), that was created in France[1] in 1979 by Georges Delbard as the result of a crossing of Grifer (Blushing Golden) × Golden Delicious.[2]

New Zealand is the sole southern hemisphere grower of Tentation, providing fruit domestically and to the northern hemisphere from June to September. In the late 1990s, a selected group of New Zealand fruit growers started planting Tentation trees. It is also grown in the United Kingdom.[3]
