What is Flapple Grav Apple?
Flapple Grav Apple is a hybrid apple variety developed by the New Zealand-based company, EnzaFruit. It is a cross between the Granny Smith and Royal Gala apples, and has a unique flavor profile that combines the tartness of Granny Smith with the sweetness of Royal Gala. The fruit has a yellowish-green skin with red stripes, and its flesh is crisp and juicy.
When Does Flapple Grav Apple Ripen?
Flapple Grav Apple typically ripens in late summer or early fall. Depending on the climate, it can be ready for harvest as early as August or as late as October. The fruit should be picked when it is fully ripe, as it will not continue to ripen after being harvested.
How to Store Flapple Grav Apple
Once picked, Flapple Grav Apples should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. They can last up to two weeks if stored properly. If you plan to eat them within a few days, they can be kept at room temperature. For longer storage, they should be refrigerated.
