What Makes Opal Apples Special?

Opal apples are special for many reasons. First and foremost, they taste great! Describing the flavor is hard because it’s unique – it has hints of sweet-tartness that is both refreshing and delightful. It kind of tastes like a combination of pear and mango, with a hint of citrus.
But there’s more – Opal apples also don’t brown when sliced or bitten into. This natural trait is due to their low levels of polyphenol oxidase (PPO) – an enzyme found in most apples that causes them to turn brown when exposed to air. This makes them especially attractive if you’re looking for an apple that stays fresh-looking when added to salads or cut up as part of lunchtime snacks.
In addition, Opals are packed with vitamins C which have antioxidant properties that help keep skin looking healthy too! Plus, they have a beautiful yellowish hue with patches of red over their golden skin – making them an aesthetically pleasing option at the dinner table.
Whether you’re looking for an apple that won’t turn brown or just want something new to try on National Opal Apple Day, this variety is perfect for both occasions! And who knows – you may even find yourself picking up some every time you visit the grocery store after trying your first one. So grab some Opals today and make sure to celebrate National Opal Apple Day on December 9th!
