KORU® Apples

Crisp, sweet, and naturally delicious

Celebrate the sweet things with KORU®

The KORU® is truly a gift from nature. This extraordinary new variety came about in New Zealand when an apple was discarded in a rose garden. The seedling that sprouted would grow a brand new apple varietal that’s phenomenally sweet and crisp.

KORU® apples are on the large side, with an attractive orange-red color over a yellow background. The shape is squat with some ribbing and russeting around the stem. KORU® is complexly sweet, with subtle tartness and notes of honey, orange juice, spice, and vanilla. It has also been described as cidery, due to its juiciness.

The KORU® is a delightful modern apple variety hailing from New Zealand. It's popular for its sweetness, juiciness, and crunchy texture.
