bilby commented on the word birthday apple
"There are new season apples and then there are 'birthday apples' - the industry nickname for those sold after up to a year in cold storage, a common practice to smooth over interruptions in seasonal supply.
In 2008, The Sun-Herald analysed Australian-grown Granny Smith apples from Sydney supermarkets and found they were between nine and 10 months old."
