The Gravenstein Apple is a hard to find varietal due to the difficulty farmers have cultivatiing it. In addition to contending with a very finicky tree, it’s also an apple that does not travel or store well. It’s best enjoyed during the relatively short season and isn’t typically shipped far. In California, it’s grown in pockets up the coast and is highly prized for its heady ambrosia perfume, and crisp, sweet-tart cream colored flesh.
