The Spartan apple is a cross between a Newton and a McIntosh. Another Canadian discovery, this apple originates from British Columbia. It is medium sized and similar in shape to a McIntosh, but with a darker red filling in more of the apple than with a Mac. Its flesh is snow-white and crispy.
The Spartan is a great all-around apple that stores very well, making it a favourite among consumers.
Available from mid-October to late January
