Apple Cup Conversion Weight FAQs

What size of apple is equal to one cup?

A cup of sliced apple weighs 109g, which is equal to just over one average-sized small apple. For example, an average-sized small apple weighs about 149g and the core (waste part of the apple) weighs around 30g which gives a net weight of 119g. If you’re using chopped (or cubed) apple, a cup will weigh 125g, which is equal to just over one small apple (without the core).

How many cups is three pounds of apple?

If the apple is sliced a cup will weigh about 109g so three pounds will be equal to 4.2 cups. If you’re using chopped (or cubed) apple a cup will weigh about 125g so three pounds will be equal to 3.6 cups of apple. Don’t forget to deduct the core weight if this isn’t already accounted for – the average apple core weighs 35g each.
