The Kanzi apple, known as “the Foodie’s Choice,” has won a series of blind taste tests and is the noted preference of chefs and bakers nationwide. The latest win came in October. Barstool Sports conducted a blind taste test of 16 apples, with Kanzi taking the top honor.

The Kanzi, a hybrid of the Gala and Braeburn apples, is the second best-selling applie in Europe. It is grown in the U.S. by a select group of Wenatchee-based CMI Orchards’ growers.
