The yellow flesh has a firm, crisp, and fine-grained texture, and has both sweet and acidic notes. The flavor contains hints of cider, flowers, oranges, and wine, though in general the flavor is subtle rather than overpowering.
Smitten apples are available from spring through early winter.

This variety was developed by Prevar and New Zealand’s plant research program and is marketed exclusively by Seventeen Limited in New Zealand. Smitten apples were first grown in 1995, but not named until 2010. Today they are also grown in Australia, the United Kingdom and Washington State. In the US they are grown and marketed by Pegasus Premium Fruit Company.
