The article provides information on the red-fleshed apple developed by New Zealand-based fruit science company HortResearch. The company claims that the apple is packed with health-promoting antioxidants. The fruit exhibits its red flesh, which is made possible by a high concentration of anthocyanin, an antioxidant known to offer health benefits to humans. The company also announced that it could be ready to roll out trees that will bear the fruit as soon as six years from 2005.
