Organic Nicola Apple

Large, sweet and crisp, the Nicola apple has a distinct cherry-red blush colour. This relatively new variety of apple is a cross between a Splendour and a Gala. A fantastic snacking apple, yet delicious in salads, sauces, and pies, the Nicola certainly lives up to its elegant name!

Handling & Storage Tips

Nicola's boast an outstanding shelf life: up to five months without losing texture or juiciness.

Refrigerated apples last much longer than those left at room temperature. Apples emit ethylene, a naturally occurring gas that speeds ripening. To prevent apples from speeding up the ripening process of other items in your produce drawer, store them in a plastic bag. Conversely, if you want to speed up the ripening of bananas (or any other ethylene sensitive produce) you can place an apple in a bag with the bananas. To maximize an apple's flavor, let it come to room temperature before eating it.
