May 2017 – From Bees to Babies
To Peel or Not to Peel
Do you like your Ambrosia apples peeled or with the skin on? You might want to consider your health before you answer that. It turns out that peeled and unpeeled apples have different nutritional value. In this recent blog we explain why you might want to park your peeler.
It’s apple blossom time in the Ambrosia orchards and that means lots of bees. Or, so we hope! Bees play a crucial role in ensuring we have a healthy harvest next September. So important, in fact, that sometimes we have to call in a bee wrangler. Click to discover the Staggering Importance of Bees (and find out what a bee wrangler does).
Oh Baby, That’s a Good Apple
When is the right time to introduce your baby to Ambrosia? A lot of people wonder if you can give babies apples and the simple answer is yes! Ambrosia apples make a great first fruit for babies for a number of reasons. Check out this blog to find out how and why babies should eat apples.
While Supplies Last
It’s the time of year when Ambrosia fans start to wonder how much longer they’ll be able to find Ambrosia apples in their local grocery store. So far, we haven’t heard any reports of supplies running low but let us know on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram what the situation is where you live. Use the hashtag #AmbrosiaApples.
And remember, there’s no need to panic. Ambrosia apples are also grown in the Southern hemisphere in both Chile and New Zealand. Those Ambrosia were harvested in March and are ready to jump right into the grocer’s bin when your local Ambrosia apples run out.
