Notes on Golden Apple

As like mango, the golden apple fruit contains tough fibers which will increase the more it ripens. The skin of a golden apple fruit is similar to mango skin, that is the the skin of a golden apple fruit is very shiny with an almost plastic appearance.

The flesh of the golden apple fruit is soft, very juicy, and tastes similar to a pineapple. The pit of the Golden Apple Fruit is filled with an indigestible wooden core that looks the same like a smaller version of a mango's core. Around one to five flat seeds will be there in the wooden core of the golden apple.

The flesh of the fruit is compressed to produce an acidic juice, as it is too bitter to consume, the juice of the fruit can be used as an ingredient for multi-fruit juices.Golden apple fruit is highly noted for its rich pectin content. Pectin is most frequently used as a gelling agent in baking and cooking. The pectin in golden apple fruit is fully extracted from its skin.
