Apple (Fruit)

 Feed Sparingly
  • Common Name: Apple (Fruit)
  • Latin Name: Malus domestica
  • Family Name: Rosaceae

Not all species of tortoises and turtles are fruit eaters, so only offer it as a small part of the diet once you have confirmed that your tortoise or turtle is a fruit eater. 

Non-fruit-eating species are not equipped to deal with the sugars present in these fruits and can suffer intestinal problems if they eat them. 

The pips/seeds contain cyanide and should therefore be avoided.  See Apple (Tree)
