What are Lucy Glo apples?
Lucy Glo Apples are tart apples with a hint of sweetness in each bite. Their skin is usually nice and golden with hints of pinkish-red blushing. The magic is on the inside where when you bite into the apple it should be a beautiful natural red color on the inside of the apple flesh.
What do Lucy Glo Apples look like?
Lucy Glow apples are medium to large apples with yellow skin. Sometimes a bit of green and sometimes red blushing. The magic of Lucy Glo apples is the flesh, which is not white like regular apples but marbled with red and pink inside.
In full transparency, this year the ones we’ve tried haven’t been as red as the previous years we purchased. We purchased both bagged and loose Lucy Glo apples. Maybe this was due to the apples nearing the end of the season or the changes in the weather.
What do Lucy Glo Apples taste like?
Lucy Glo apples are crisp, slightly sweet, tart, and have hints of berries.

How to Lucy Glo Apples
Just like any other apple, avoid any blemishes, gashes, or bruises. We find that there’s no sure way to know the inside will be bright pink without cutting into it. We sometimes will press into one of the apples we’ve selected and if it’s pink under it “may” be more pink-fleshed inside..
Can you freeze Lucy Glo apples?
Yes, you can absolutely freeze apples. Here’s how to freeze apples:
Mix 2 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of salt in a bowl.
Wash the apples and prep them for freezing. Now is when you’ll peel and slice or just slice if you’re leaving the skin on.
Toss the apples in the water and salt mixture, then let soak for 30 seconds. Drain the apples and rinse. Place the apples onto a parchment-lined baking sheet with a bit of space between them to prevent them from freezing together. When freezing, we suggest using parchment paper or a Silpat Non-Stick Baking Mat on a cookie sheet. If not, the apples will stick to the cookie sheet.
Freeze the apples until frozen, about 4 hours. Once frozen, add the apples to a freezer-safe container and freeze for 4-6 months. We like using Stasher Bags.
