Arctic apple marketer unveils 2020 harvest video

Okanagan Specialty Fruits developer and grower behind the Arctic apple, has released a video capturing the 2020 harvest.

Filmed this past fall, the video, located here, 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 apple,” Bob Wilkinson, Director of Sales for Okanagan Specialty Fruits (OSF), said in a news release. “It is our hope that 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.

Arctic apples’ fresh slices are available in 4 sizes and 2 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.

Arctic apples are grown for those who believe wholesome foods are essential for a healthy lifestyle and are looking for fruits that are unmatched in quality, convenience, and sustainability.
