    Actually, the best way to break an apple in half, it's to put your thumbs in the higher gap, and hold it with the other fingers. And then just pull it apart with your hands. I learned this from my 2 years dead grandma. A good lesson when you are at school. :]

    thought this was gonna be really tricky as my hands are pretty long not very muscly but before watching your videos I decided to give it a try, no videos, never attempted this before, by the time i grabbed the apple and went to my desk i figured it out... pretty neat

    I did this at school and it was so funnnnnnnn!!!! Broke the Apple Watch my bare hands. First I softened the Apple on the table just a little but not too much or else it will bruise and it won’t work. After that I dug into the top of the Apple where the stem is with 4 fingers and I twisted it the opposite direction and I kept twisting until it broke. I was so surprised I did it!!!

    Its easier to place your index finger on the apple right on the top,and just hit with the other hand,with practice works from first try.Don.t worry the apple will break faster than the finger.

    For the smaller one lay your finger across the top of the Apple and with your other hand slam down on your finger as hard as you can, breaking the Apple in to usually 2-5 pieces
