A New Zealander has discovered the world’s smallest apple and his new creation has been snapped up by a top UK supermarket.
The apple, which is the same size as a golf ball, is being sold exclusively by Marks & Spencer.
the new apples have been given the name ‘Tiddly Pomme’ – after the classic Winnie the Pooh rhyme Tiddly Pom by AA Milne. The name was found by running competition.
The super-sweet apple is basically a miniature version of the Royal Gala variety and it is hoped it will appeal to children.
If the tiny fruit proves a hit, M&S, which buys the fruit from Empire World Trade Fruit, will plant its own Tiddly Pommes in Britain for a year-round supply.
