Grāpple (// GRAY-pəl) is the registered brand name for a commercially marketed brand of Fuji or Gala apple that has been specially treated to make the flesh taste like a Concord grape.
A Grāpple is created by infusing[clarification needed] an apple with a concentrated solution of natural and artificial Concord grape flavor and water. This solution does not add additional sugars or caloric content, nor does it affect the nutritional value of a standard apple. All ingredients are USDA and FDA approved and the process has been licensed by the Washington State Department of Agriculture. Contrary to what the name implies, it is an externally flavored fruit product, not a true hybrid of two fruits.
