    Organic Apples?

    Where can one buy organic apples in Hong Kong and how much do they generally cost?

    I used to buy them at ThreeSixty supermarket in Central and I had also seen them at City Super in IFC. Sorry I can't recall how much they cost.

    Do we really have organic apples? I wonder. Might be if they exist you can get them at any of your near by grocery store who sell organic fruits.

    Marketplace by Jason's, Taste, Great - they all have them. I've also seen them Citysuper sometimes. Not sure what you mean, lilypotter - but you sure sound cynical. Why don't you believe that apples that are labeled "organic" (and priced as such) are really organic? Many are imported (not from China) if that is your concern.

    Threesixty have them, about $7 per apple (sometimes cheaper). Many are from overseas (eg, Australia, US, France) but sometimes they are from China.

    Thanks TSTMum--I will check it out. We consume a lot of apples and apples (even when they're peeled) are on Environmental Working Group's "Dirty Dozen" list--of the 12 items it's best to buy organic. My son especially eats a lot of apples. Will check it out and thanks for the price guess-timate. :)
