University of Minnesota unveils new 'Kudos' apples

The University of Minnesota has unveiled a new apple variety, to become available in coming years. Last week, the U of M’s College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences announced that horticulturists at the school have developed a new variety of apple known as MN33, which will be sold as the "Kudos" apple. It was developed by crossing the Honeycrisp and Zestar! apple varieties. It has a “crisp, juicy texture” and tastes sweet with “occasional tropical overtones,” according to the university spokespeople.

The new apple is a blush red color and is harvested in late September. It was released to nurseries for propagation last year, and the U says orchards have been placing orders for trees.
