JTA — If you’re looking to add some flair to your Rosh Hashanah table, these apples, which are imprinted with Stars of David and Rosh Hashanah greetings, might do the trick.

Fun to Eat Fruit, a company specializing in imprinted fruits, is selling the holiday-themed apples in time for the Jewish New Year, when Jews traditionally dip the fruit in honey.

The images are made from kosher, “food-grade ingredients,” and choices include the Star of David, a montage of Jewish symbols and Rosh Hashanah greetings.

Customers can choose from several apple varieties, including Red Delicious, McIntosh, Fuji and Gala.

A portion of the proceeds is being donated to Mazon, a Jewish organization working to combat hunger in the U.S. and Israel.

The apples aren’t cheap — a dozen go for $18 — but if you feel nothing says Rosh Hashanah like an apple that says Rosh Hashanah, make sure to place your order by Sept. 18 to ensure delivery before the holiday, which begins at sundown on Oct. 2.
