Apples are easily one of the world’s most ubiquitous fruits. They’re a symbol for classic Americana when baked into a good old fashioned lattice-top pie. There’s no love greater than being the “apple” of someone’s eye. The fruit even has a starring role in one of the most popular books of all time, the Bible.
Despite its controversial guest appearance in the Garden of Eden, the apple has remained insanely popular to this day. From snacks to desserts to a major technology brand, the sweet crispy fruit is still a legendary cultural staple. Yet still, it continues to reinvent itself.
The latest fruit gossip has been dominated by news of a sleek new varietal, the mysterious Black Diamond apple. And while the only black apples I’ve ever seen have been retrieved from the slimy depths of forgotten refrigerator drawer, these Black Diamonds are allegedly in a league of their own. However, you may not ever get a chance to taste these elusive fruits.
