Green Malang Apples
Inventory, lb : 0
Green Malang apples are fairly small in size (5 to 7 centimeters). They are very round and symmetrical, a notched base at the bottom. The skin of Green Malangs is thick and rough, and a bright yellow-green color as the name suggests. These fruits bruise easily and will not last long if blemished. Inside, the flesh of the Green Malang apple is white with a crisp, dense texture. They do not have a high water content, so are not very juicy. Green Malangs are one of the sweeter and aromatic varieties of Indonesian apples.
Green Malang apples are available in the fall.
Green Malang apples (botanical name Malus domestica) are also known as Manalagi apples in Indonesia. They are quite popular in Indonesia, although less well-known outside of the region.
Apples contain many beneficial nutrients. They are highest in both soluble and insoluble fiber, which keeps the digestive system healthy, and in Vitamin C and other antioxidants that are good for the immune system and are anti-inflammatory. Apples also contain some potassium. The most nutrients are located in and directly under the apple’s skin.
Green Malang apples are fairly versatile, and can be eaten fresh out of hand or can be juiced or dried into chips. Pair apples with other fruits and vegetables such as onions, celery, and citrus; nuts; meats such as pork; and spices like cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, and cloves. Store in a cool, dry place like the refrigerator for a few weeks. Green Malang apples will not last more than a few weeks even in proper storage.
Indonesia is the home to a few varieties of apples. The most well-known varieties come from Batu City and Poncokusumo District in Malang, East Java. Three apples in particular are grown in the country—Manalagi/Green Malang, Rome Beauty, and Anna apples. In Indonesia, Green Malangs are often processed commercially, to make jam, apple chips, apple juice, and vinegar.
Apples were first planted in Indonesia in the 1930s by the Dutch, and then became commercially popular in the 1960s. The few apple varieties that do not require cold winters can grow in tropical climates such as Indonesia. They grow best at around 700-1200 meters above sea level.
