Sugar Test

We did a test today to see how ripe our Sandow apples are.  It involved squirting an iodine solution on 8 apples (cut crossways).  As you will see from the photo, most of the apples are still high in starch and low in sugar.  We are looking for there to be more of that golden colour, visible around the core, and we know that many of you are keen too!

The black/grey part of the apple represents the “starch” & the golden near the core is the “sugar”.
