Wellant apples are medium to large in size and are oblong to oblate in shape. The smooth, matte skin has a yellow to green base and is covered in dark red striping and blush. There are also many light tan lenticels or pores covering the surface of the skin, and some russeting may be present. The flesh is cream to pale yellow, very juicy, and crunchy with a few small light brown seeds encased in a central fibrous core. Wellant apples are aromatic and have a sweet flavor with a subtle tart aftertaste.
Wellant apples are available from early fall through early spring.
Wellant apples, botanically classified as Malus domestica, are a modern variety from the Netherlands created by the Dutch cooperative consortium known as Inova Fruit. A cross between the elise, another Dutch-developed apple, and an unknown cultivar, Wellant apples were released in 1987 and are a mid-season variety that was created as an all-purpose apple.
Wellant apples are high in vitamin C and fiber including insoluble fiber, which keeps the digestive system working smoothly, and soluble fiber, like pectin, which can help protect the cardiovascular system.
Wellant apples are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as baking, roasting, or poaching. They are most well known as a dessert variety and can be consumed fresh, out of hand. They can also be sliced and used in breakfast bowls, blended in smoothies, or chopped into salads or slaws. Wellant apples can be baked into desserts such as caramel apple bars, cobblers, cakes, tarts, and pies, or cooked in savory preparations with Brussel sprouts or meat dishes such as pork or sausage. Wellant apples pair well with yogurt, bacon, chicken, pork, sausage, cheeses such as gouda or edam, and spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg. They will keep up to eight months when stored in a cool and dark place or the refrigerator.
As with many modern varieties of apples introduced to market, the Wellant was developed at a research institute in the Netherlands to be an apple with improved storage qualities. Researchers at these centers work to select the best traits of the apples they grow and to bring fruits to the market that have specific qualities, such improved flavor, resistance to disease, and longer storage life. Wellant apples are very popular in the Netherlands and are grown by many Dutch orchardists because of their improved qualities.
Wellant apples were developed in 1987 by Inova Fruit at the Veredelingsinstituut Research Center at the University of Wageningen, Netherlands. Today Wellant apples can be found at specialty markets across Europe.
