This is the black diamond apple.
Without further ado, let’s delve into some amazing facts about our showstopper for today – The black diamond apple.
The hatched baby of Tibet!
The diamond black apples are cultivated in the fields of Nyingchi (Tibet), an area that’s more than 3,100 meters above sea level.
The black diamond apples can only be harvested in certain regions, but it’s not easy to grow this marvelous fruit. The weather conditions tend to influence the growth of this fruit.
Do you know that the U.S. also cultivates a large variety of black apples? They are called ‘Arkansas black apple’, but you have to stock them so that they can develop a sweet taste over time.
The scrumptiously munchy crunchy dessert!
This particular apple is called the ‘scorpion fruit’. Its unique taste enriches your taste buds with flavors.
The black diamond apple is a munchy crunchy fruit that contains a high quantity of natural glucose. Indeed, they will make for a scrumptious snack when added to any dish or salad.
Over the years, this fruit has mesmerized people with its taste and unique appearance. However, it does not provide adequate nutrition as compared to the other variants of apples available in the market.
The once in a blue moon arrival!
As black diamond apple is cultivated in distant areas in extreme weather conditions, it is rarely made available in the market.
This unusual magical fantasy is rare to attain apples from the brood of Hua Niu apples, also known as Chinese Red Delicious. They are available in China’s grocery stores as well.
Many people give up their hope for tasting black diamond apples as they belong to the family of luxurious fruits. Also, not to miss that they are grown in the unusual harvesting season, and are showcased in the market for only two months, October and November.
You can also give this luxury fruit to your loved ones as a gift on festive occasions.
The black diamond apples are scrutinized through a quality evaluation test, and only around 30% of the apples are made available in the market.
The chances for you to taste such a delicious fruit might be hard. But you can always try your luck out!
The big-budget eatable!
The black diamond apples come with a heavy price tag. Therefore, you must keep a check on how much money you can spend to buy this fruit. You can buy a pound of apple in the U.S. for approximately $2, and only a single black diamond costs you around $7.
The majestic purple apple!
The black diamond apples have a purplish texture. This is due to the high altitude of the area that is continuously being influenced by unprecedented climate conditions. Also, the ultraviolet rays of the Sun tend to have an impact on the color of the fruit. During the night time, there is a drastic change in the temperature. This temperature change results in a deep dark color of the fruit – that appears to be black. Hence, the reason for seeing black spots on the outer side of the black diamond apple is due to the native landscape.
Now you know the reason behind its darker shade.
The people might seem black to you but in reality, it’s of majestic purple color!
The prolonged time-lapse to harvest!
As mentioned earlier, it’s hard to harvest Black diamond apples. Certainly, the location (Nyingchi) and the fact that they are produced with natural methods without using any fertilizers and chemicals make it harder for farmers to harvest it in a greater quantity.
It takes around two to three years for the apple trees to fully grow while it can take eight years for scorpions to grow.
As a greater proportion of black diamond apples is not available in the market, therefore, farmers don’t get their due rewards for their efforts that they put in to cultivate this fruit.
