An all-purpose variety of apple developed in Switzerland. The Junami is a cross between the Elstar, Ida Red and Maigold apples. A large, slightly irregularly shaped apple, it has a streaky red blush with a few traces of green over a yellow background. The flavor is sweetly tart with floral overtones. It has a crisp, succulent texture. See also Apple.
