A medium to large size variety of apple, which is a cross between a Golden Delicious, Cox's Orange Pippin, and the Duchess of Oldenburg. This apple was originally named Pinova in Europe where it was first discovered but when a company bought the exclusive rights to grow it in the United States, they renamed it Piñata! It is slightly cone shaped and its skin has a yellowish-orange background with red striping over it. Its white flesh has a sweet flavor with a touch of acidity. It is very juicy and makes a great snacking apple. It is great when used fresh in salads because its flesh resists browning. They also are great for baking and make good sauce.
