The next time you are in your grocery store's produce section, keep your eye out for a new apple variety : The Sonya. I was shopping and my store had a small display of this new variety. I was instantly drawn to these apples; they had a perfect shape, and a lovely rosy hue.
Without knowing anything about them, I bought some.
The Sonya has an amazingly crisp and juicy apple taste with just a hint of a watermelon flavor underneath. They are yummy apples to crunch. A cross between a Gala and Red Delicious, a Sonya has a distinct, heartlike shape, a firm crunch and a sweet and juicy flavor, similar to a Honey Crisp. The Sonya originated in New Zealand and is now being grown in Washington state.
They even have their own website: Sonyapple.com
From their website:
