Sunburst ‘Pumpkin-apples’ arrives exclusively at  Waitrose for Halloween


An apple, perfect for Halloween, arrives exclusively into Waitrose shops today.  The supermarket is the first in the UK to launch the Sunburst variety of the fruit, which has been nicknamed the ‘pumpkin apple’ thanks to its orange-hued skin.  Bite into it and the fruit’s spooky red flesh is revealed.

Grown in Kent, the tangy apple has a flavour akin to a nostalgic fruit-salad chewy sweet.

Greg Sehringer, Waitrose Apple Buyer, says: “Our British-grown ‘pumpkin apples’ are the perfect treat for little ghouls and ghosts on Halloween. Looking just like mini pumpkins, these apples will surprise anyone on Halloween with their hidden red flesh. Perfect for tricking apple bobbers.”

Waitrose Seasonal Sunburst Apples are available for limited time, £2.50 for a pack of four.
