National Opal Apples Day 2023: On December 9, we celebrate National Opal Apples Day, a sunny fruit unlike any other: Opal® apples! This fruit is a hybrid of a Golden Delicious and a Topaz apple, with a bright yellow appearance, distinct crunch, and a sweet and tangy flavor. However, this apple’s remarkable natural non-browning qualities—which guarantee that it will stay crisp and fresh even after cutting—are what really set it apart.

The days of opening lunchboxes and salads to find mushy, browning apples are long gone! Opals do not brown even when left sliced for hours!

FirstFruits Farms in Washington grows Opal® apples exclusively in the United States; they are non-GMO. Opals are becoming more and more popular, so we urge everyone to give them a try and experience the difference!

National Opal Apples Day 2023: History

Though there are more than 7,000 types of apples, Opal® apples are unmistakably unique. FirstFruits Farms is the only company in North America to sell Opal® apples, which were first discovered in Europe in 1999. It is currently among the most sought-after apples available. There is no comparison between Opal® apples and regular apples.

Opals are becoming a popular choice for salads, smoothies, and light snacks because of their unique oxidation-resistant qualities and striking golden appearance. Despite their tendency toward pickiness, children also seem to enjoy the fruit.

FirstFruits Farms is the source of our Opal® apples. FirstFruits Farms, established in 1980, has transformed the cultivation and production of goods and is dedicated to supplying the highest-quality fruit to consumers’ tables and kitchens equitably and sustainably.

Created at the Institute of Experimental Botany in Prague, the Opal® apple is a naturally non-browning apple that has independent non-GMO verification. In 2010, FirstFruits Farms acquired exclusive growing and sales rights in North America. The fruit industry was a flurry of activity as this new and exciting variety gained popularity, particularly with health-conscious consumers.

Opal® apples are available in major grocery stores nationwide, but they’re not as common as Honeycrisps or Galas, so don’t miss out on them while they’re in season, which runs from November to June every year. Savor them while you can!What to do on this day

Locate Opal® apples around you.

Purchasing and sampling opal apples is the ideal way to commemorate National Opal Apple Day. Opal® apples are available in a few different places around the nation. Locate a store in your area or visit

Try a recipe.

They taste good and are nourishing! If you think apples are delicious, wait until you try the recipes that call for Opal® apples. Opal® apple cranberry chutney, Opal® apple overnight oats, and Opal® apple smothered pork chops are a few recipe ideas.

Give it to other people.

While Opal® apples are a fruit that gives back, there’s nothing quite like sharing them. Present sliced Opal® apples to people or share information about them with your friends and food groups on social media to let them know what they are missing out on.
