Why you should eat this fruit that stays fresh for a year

People often debate that berries last only a few days, while the same is said for bananas. But, how would you feel about a fruit that stays fresh for a year? Sounds crazy although it’s true!

A new variety of apple is in some stores. Created by Washington State University, the Cosmic Crisp is marketed to last up to 365 days in your refrigerator! Since the higher education institute provided the cost of research, they will own a decade long exclusive right to selling it. Cosmic Crisp® apples have been in development for over 20 years. Since their parent is the Honeycrisp, they are told to be firm, crisp, and juicy.

The malic acid in apples help clean your teeth by dissolving stains. Here is a chart of some of the benefits of eating apples.
