Black Diamond Apple Is a Very Expensive Apple

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

That's a tasty price. I'll pass even though it sounds delicious.

It does sound good, but due to all the trouble it takes to grow those apples, it is too pricey for me too.

That's very rare indeed. I don't know if this is the apple eaten by Eve in the garden of Eden. Just only my thought.

Since the growing season is too short and the amount of apples is minimal, I bet they are not shipped to many places.

@Corbin5 I'll bet. Eating them fresh would be best - it'd be a shame to cook with them.

Yes, they are so hard to grow in such a short period of time. Not many farmers want to grow those thus the high price.

That sounds a tad pricy to me. It may be good but a little too steep for me.

Yes, the amount of work needed to grow them and the 2-month growing season makes those apples very rare.

I will never buy it either. I do not think the apples are shipped to other places due to the apples being so rare.

@Corbin5 For someone that does not eat apples anymore I think that is really really cool what you shared with us. I know you said it is difficult to grow but it is found anywhere but Tibet?

Yes, there is one city in Tibet that grows these apples. Most farmers find it is not worth all the work to grow these so their rareness is the reason for the high cost.

@Corbin5 So let me ask if it is hard for farmers how is it different to grow them in Tibet than anywhere else in the world?

@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.

@LadyDuck I have been disappointed by the taste of foods too. I hope the Black Diamond is a good tasting apple due to all the work it takes to grow it.

Interesting, I never heard or saw this kind of apples. If the apples from Tibet then have to be perfect, I would certainly buy them just to have them here

I bet the apples grown are perfect. Only a few farmers will take on the task of growing the Black Diamond apples.
