Apples come in different varieties, shapes, and sizes. It’s been noted that there are a whopping 7,500 different varieties of apple grown across the globe. Some are yellow, pink, or green, but have you heard of Black Apple. Here’s one of the rarest fruit in the world.
The “Black Diamond is a rare apple with a Jet black hue, a taste sweeter than honey and crispness unmatched by any other apple. From outside they almost look like candle wax and are as beautiful as a Diamond. This is how they got their name.
These rare apples are a breed of Hua Niu apples (also known as Chinese Red Delicious) that get their unique dark purple color from the geographical conditions of Nyingchi, in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.
Unfortunately, Black Diamond apples are not easy to grow. Because they are cultivated under such harsh and diverse conditions, they take much longer to grow than the average apple. Black Diamond apple has so far only been grown around 3,100 meters above sea level in Nyingchi, Tibet.
Remember there are 7,500 different varieties of Apple. The more we think we know the lesser we knew.
