DEVELOPMENT & HARVEST
Blooming time is in spring and harvesting is done in autumn. In China the apples are handpicked and gathered manually. After harvesting the apples are sorted by size, removing the less good apples.

PROCESSING
Subsequently the skins and the core are removed, afterwards the apples are cut into the right shapes and sizes. After cutting, the apples are sulphured in order to preserve their beautiful white color, killing moulds and harmful bacteria, and prolonging shelf life. After sulphuring comes mechanical drying.

Eight to ten kilos of fresh apples are required for one kilo of dried apples. Apples are dried according to two moisture contents. They are high-moisture (22-24% moisture) and low moisture (3-5% moisture). High moisture yields a tough product, while low-moisture apples are crispy. Drying times depend on the moisture percentage desired.
