Why opt for Leap Club Apples?
Apples are a fruit highly sprayed with pesticides. They are also smeared with petroleum wax to make them look shiny. Apples from LeapClub are grown organically so you don’t consume high levels of pesticides found in normal apples. While the LeapClub apples won’t be glossy it is because they are not covered with toxic petroleum wax.
