Jazz is a trademarked brand of the ‘Scifresh’ cultivar of domesticated apple.
‘Scifresh’ is a cross between ‘Royal Gala’ and Braeburn. It was developed in New Zealand as part of a collaboration between apple marketer ENZA, orchardists, and the Plant & Food Research institute. The original cross was made in 1985 on trees at Goddard Lane, Havelock North, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.
It is hard and crisp but juicy. The color is flushes of red and maroon over shades of green, yellow and orange. Grown in the northern and southern hemispheres, it is available all year round.
