This podcast is supported by Atlanta Orchards. Atlanta Orchards are a family run company (Doc's family in fact) and provide quality apples to the state of Victoria, Australia. They would like to promote their new kanzi and greenstar apples. Greenstars, the first 100 per cent non-browning apples are a cross between a granny smith and a delbarestivale apple. The apples are green, sweet, juicy, have a thin skin and have the highest vitamin C content of any apple, which helps keep them naturally white for days after cutting. The kanzi is the number one apple sold in Europe and is bright red and crunchy, with a long shelf life — a cross between a gala and braeburn apple. So ask for Atlanta kanzi and greenstar apples in your local greengrocers Victoria wide.
