Rockit™ apples, botanically classified as Malus domestica, are a new variety that has been bred purposefully for its tiny size. Rockit™ apples were created from a cross between a gala and a gala splendor cultivar and were created as the world’s first snack-sized apple. This variety is created without the use of GMOs and is used as a healthy snack food consumed fresh, out of hand.
Apples contain both soluble and insoluble fiber, along with vitamin C and small amounts of calcium, potassium, and vitamin A.
Rockit™ apples are best suited for raw applications as they were developed specifically as a snack food. Their small size and packaging are meant to appeal to consumers who want a healthy, on-the-go alternative to processed snacks like candy. They are most commonly consumed fresh, but Rockit™ apples can also be sliced and served over yogurt to make an apple bircher muesli. They can also be dipped in chocolate and nuts and made into a lollipop, served on cheese and fruit platters, or shaved on top of green salads and pasta. Rockit™ apples are known for their long shelf life and will keep for a couple of weeks when stored in a cool and dark place or the refrigerator.
Rockit™ apples are designed for consumers who want a snack-size apple on the go, especially for kids, tapping into the popularity of the fresh fruit market in the United States. A recent study showed that apples make up almost nineteen percent of the fruit consumed by young people ages 2-19. To meet this demand, Rockit™ apples come pre-washed and pre-packaged in plastic cylinders of three to five. These tubes are made from recyclable plastic and are designed to keep the apples free from excess germs and dirt. They are also convenient for on the go lifestyles and are easily portable.
Rockit™ apples were created by Plant and Food Research in New Zealand, and the rights to the apple were then purchased by Havelock North Fruit Company, located in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, in 2002. The apples were released to the market in 2010, and today Rockit™ apples are sold in eighteen countries found in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, but only one company per country is allowed to grow them. In the United States, they are grown exclusively by Chelan Fresh in Washington state.
