You know there are a lot of people in the world who don’t know the taste of apples because of “apple allergies.” But scientists are working on it. In 2025–2026, we will see in supermarkets “allergy-friendly apples,” and a lot of people will try the taste of an apple for the first time in their lives.
At the Osnabruck University of Applied Sciences, Prof. Werner Dierend and his team found two new allergy-friendly varieties. Frankly speaking, they found 700 new apple varieties through the ZIN breeding program, but only two of them are allergy-friendly.
From 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, and 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 or yellow color after cutting… And in the future, you will see in cafes, on planes, or in supermarkets “pieces of apples” with a long shelf life.
