Originating in Japan, the Green Dragon apple was named after the Chinese symbol for royalty. It looks like a green-tinted Golden Delicious, but features a crisp, white flesh and bruise-resistant skin. It is a sweet apple, with low acidity, and the flavor has been described as having a slight pineapple flavor or even a pear-like taste. The Green Dragon also emits a delicious candy-apple aroma.
