We go through lots of fruit in our house and most of it is apples. We tend to throw the apples in the fridge in a bowl. My daughter is too small to open the fridge and get an apple herself, which means I have to get them for her and any parent of a young child knows they want to be independent. The fruit also tends to be bruised easily in a bowl and my kids won’t eat bruised apples.
A new fruit holder that should work for any roundish fruit like apples and oranges has been unveiled by Swedish designers Michael Andersson and Maria Axelqvist. The thing is a tube that curls around and looks like a little version of a water slide with an open top and should prevent bruises pretty well.
The idea is that you stack the fruit in a row inside and as you grab an apple from the bottom, the fruit rolls down so it’s always at hand. I don’t see what keeps the fruit from just falling out on the floor though. I also wonder how well it will deal with irregularly shaped apples. Since it’s a design concept right now, you can’t buy one.
