Black Diamond Apple Is a Very Expensive Apple
July 8, 2019 11:36am CST
One of the rarest apples in the world happens to be the Black Diamond apple. The skin that covers the white flesh of the Black Diamond apple is actually a very dark purple Tibet is the place where Black Diamond apples are grown. Black Diamond apples receive a lot of ultraviolet light during the daytime hours, however, at night, the temperature in the growing area shifts dramatically. The shifting of temperature at night causes that deep purple skin that covers the Black Diamond apple. The Black Diamond apple has a pleasing sweet taste. Black Diamond apples are difficult to grow due to farmers having only two months of the year in which to grow this apple with the dark purple skin. It is not easy to find a Black Diamond apple to purchase, and just one Black Diamond apple will cost a consumer $7 or more. Photo: twentytwowords

@Hannihar The apples have too-short of a growing season and the amount of work is far too much for most farmers. Other places in the world do not have the fluctuating nighttime temperatures needed to grow these apples as does the city in Tibet.
