Okanagan Specialty Fruits® (OSF), the developer and grower behind the Arctic® apple, has released a video capturing the 2020 harvest. Filmed this past fall, the video includes an inside look at the processing and packaging of Arctic apples.
“We wanted to take viewers on a visual journey with us through a typical season with Arctic apples,” said Bob Wilkinson, director of sales for OSF. “It is our hope this video provides new insight into the care and precision it takes to grow, process and package Arctic apples.”
Arctic apples use the apple’s own genes to “turn off” the enzyme responsible for making apples turn brown when cut or bruised. The result is a longer shelf life and an apple that tastes and looks better, which means less food waste from harvest to consumption, says Arctic.
Arctic apples’ fresh slices are available in four sizes and two varieties: Arctic® Golden (sweet) and Arctic® Granny (tart) in 40 oz., 10 oz., 5 oz. and 2 oz. bags. Arctic apple slices retain their fresh appearance and flavor long after conventional apple slices.
