Delicious
(NaturalNews) Twenty years of careful research and development on a new apple variety has produced an amazing fruit that New Zealand's Scoop news states is "sweet, tangy and delicious." And the most amazing aspect of Swiss orchardist and researcher Markus Kobelt's new RedLove apple variety is that it was designed to be resistant to disease, appealing to the palate, and easy to grow -- and all without the use of any sort of artificial genetic modification.

For many years, researchers from other organizations have been working on creating a genetically modified (GM) apple variety that would be higher in nutrients, more resistant to disease and pests, and appealing to growers and consumers. But Kobelt beat them to the punch with his new non-GM variety, which was created using only natural breeding and cross-pollination techniques, rather than genetic manipulation, which means that it also bears none of the very serious health threats that GM varieties do.

"These varieties of new apple have been created through non-GE (genetically engineered) techniques which is fantastic," said Claire Bleakley from GE Free NZ in Food and Environment, a non-profit organization working to raise awareness about the dangers of genetically modified organisms (GMOs). "It cannot be logical to spend millions of taxpayers dollars and research resources on a red GE apple we know could have dangers to the environment and people health and is simply not acceptable to the market, and already exists as a non-GE variant."

The RedLove apple is both sweet and tangy; it works well both raw and cooked; it bears a uniquely beautiful red color; it contains higher-than-normal levels of antioxidants; and it is resistant to scab disease. And best of all, every one of these traits was infused naturally and without artificial genetic alterations.

The development of the RedLove is a perfect example of why GMOs are both inferior and unnecessary. Besides being dangerous to animals, the environment, and humans (http://www.naturalnews.com/GMO.html), GMOs simply do not provide any additional growing or consumption benefit over natural varieties, particularly natural varieties like the RedLove that have been naturally bred to bear the most desirable characteristics.
