You know there are a lot of people in the world who don’t know the taste of apples because of “Apple allergy”. But scientists are working on it. In 2025-2026 we will see in supermarkets “allergy-friendly apples’’ and a lot of people will try taste of apple first time in their life.

Osnabruck University of Applied Sciences, Prof. Werner Dierend and his team found 2 new allergy-friendly varieties. Frankly speaking; they found 700 new apple varieties through the ZIN Breeding program but 2 of them are allergy-friendly.

For this news we can tell : A small step for humanity but a big step for those who don’t know the taste of an apple.

Also, there is a big problem with apples which scientists are working on it too! You can’t imagine what it is… When you cut an apple and leave it at room temperature; the piece of apple’s color is white and yellow… But after several hours exposed to room temperature, the color is going to be darker and darker…

Scientists are trying to keep that white/yellow color after cutting… And in the future, you will see in cafes and at the flights or in supermarkets ”pieces of apples” with long shelf life.
