Okanagan Specialty Fruits (OSF), developer and grower behind the Arctic apple, has launched its new, individual-sized two-ounce package.

In addition to the new package size, OSF is introducing a new cut available only in the 2 oz. size: half-wedges, or “chunks.” The 2 oz. packages are available in 100-count cases. Both Arctic Golden and Arctic Granny varieties will be offered.

OSF is also looking forward to the release of its first red apple variety, Arctic Fuji, in fall 2021.

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 slice 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.
