Stayman

Melinda. The most aromatic of the Staymans.

An all-around apple.

It's called Stayman Winesap Melinda, has a sweet-tart flavour, is pleasantly aromatic and is highly sought after by connoisseurs for its appreciable organoleptic and nutritional characteristics. For example, its high content of magnesium, zinc and tartaric acid give it some unique sedative properties, with a relaxing action on the nervous system. This apple ripens in autumn and although its name is not well-known, it is enjoyed by many.

APPEARANCE

Green-yellowish colour, with some red streaks. Rounded and slightly asymmetric, medium-large size. The skin, or peel, is thick and rough.

FLAVOUR

This apple's flavour is slightly aromatic, juicy, almost sparkling, sweet but not too sugary, and with pleasant tart notes.

PULP

Creamy-white colour, crumbly and pasty, with soft green nuances.

HOW TO ENJOY THEM

Raw, in order to keep all its precious organoleptic and nutritive properties; but also cooked, as an ingredient in delicious and healthy desserts.
