Hi guys! What do you call the whole white things surrounding the apples?

I would call then, "A monumental waste of valuable plastic that should be universally banned".

Bob makes a good point.

However, to answer your question, Steven, I ran a Google image search for reticulated+netting+for+protecting+fruit, which yielded the following associated terms (there may also be others further down the page):

Foam protection sleeve

Foam protection net

Foam mesh wrap

Foam net

Wrap net

Fruit foam wrap net

Fruit foam sock


I think it's fair to say that there is no standard term for this product.

For the layman, a basic description would probably also be acceptable. So 'protective cushioning', 'protective mesh' or even just 'fruit mesh' might work too, especially for someone who is already familiar with this product.
