London: Marks & Spencer has launched the world's smallest apple, which is the size of a golf-ball.

The apple will be in high street stores after it was found by grower David Cranwell in one of his orchards in New Zealand, a daily reported.

The 42mm diameter Tiddly Pomme has been snapped up exclusively by Marks and Spencer, which hopes that it will encourage kids to eat more fruits.

A pack of six will cost just 1.49 pounds, M & S buyer Shazad Rehman said that people shouldn't be fooled by its appearance, as what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for, in flavour.

If the fruit becomes a hit then M & S will plant its own Tiddly Pomme in the UK for a year- round supply.
