The blush on this attractive, medium-large apple is saturated over about half the otherwise green-yellow surface and is streaky or blotchy elsewhere. The fruit is conical and decorated with small light lenticels in a bottom-to-top pattern: many clustered together it the bottom but few at the top. The effect is as if they are radiating or rising from the base like bubbles in a champagne glass.
The unbroken fruit is reasonably firm and has only a very faint sweet aroma.
Jazz's coarse flesh is creamy yellow and very crisp and juicy. The first bite is nicely satisfying. Jazz is sweet, but not overpoweringly so. Its flavor is very light and delicate with cane-sugar and perfumed floral notes, and an elusive hint of orange juice.
I think this might be my favorite of the durable industrial apples that are shipped all over the world (and that brighten our palates in the off-season.)
Jazz is the marketing name for Scifresh, a Braeburn-Gala cross introduced in 2000. I think it would be popular with fans of its parent varieties who would like to try something new. Orange Pippin likes this variety a lot and has more to say about it.
