Opal Apple


Opal is no ordinary apple! This bright-yellow apple features a distinctive crunchy texture and sweet, tangy flavor. However, the most incredible, unique and natural feature of this non-GMO apple is that it doesn’t brown—making it perfect for lunchboxes, salads, baking and, well, just about any other apple recipe you can think of.

One important difference, that can’t be seen or tasted, is a portion of Opal Apple sales goes to nonprofits through its Youth Make a Difference Initiative grants. These grants are available to youth-led nonprofit initiatives surrounding food security and politics, nutrition, agriculture and education.

Hurry and get some Opal Apples now because they are only available from October through June. To learn about Opal Apples, where you can find them and the causes they support, visit their website and like their Facebook page.
