New Fruit On The Block

We've covered a few interesting fruit discoveries over the recent weeks. We’ve seen cotton candy flavoured grapes and mammoth oversized satsumas, aptly names SATSUMOS! This week another fruity hybrid has been released – the Grapple.

As you’ve probably guessed, the Grapple is cross between a grape and an apple. The Washington based company state on their website that you get the ‘sweet distinctive flavor of Concord grapes combined with the crispness of a fresh, juicy Washington Extra Fancy apple.

However unlike the other fruits that we’ve covered, the grapple is not the result of a cross pollination made in heaven. Instead this fruity marriage has been somewhat forced. The Grapple is created by soaking either a Fiji or Gala apple in complex liquid solution that includes concentrated grape flavouring and water.

The company insists that the process does no cause the apple to take on any extra sugar or calories, nor is it ‘genetically altered any way.’ 

The company feel that combining two fruits in one will help to encourage people to eat more fresh produce. Hmmmm, personally, I think I prefer my apples and grapes straight up.
