An Apple A Day

organichoneycrispWe’re always excited for fresh new arrivals, especially Apples! We just started receiving fresh deliveries of 1st crop McIntoshes, Ginger Golds, & Granny Smiths, as well as Paula Reds & Empires from Hudson Valley. And possibly the most in-demand apple these days, Honeycrisps seem to inspire a devotion bordering on obsession from eaters who prize their sweet taste and distinct juiciness. A “great hand apple”: phenomenal for biting into raw. This explosive crunchiness isn’t simply a product of better freshness or farming practices — it’s an actual genetic variation. Honeycrisp cells are twice the size of those of other apples, which accounts for their unique, pleasing texture. Before we know it the local CT apple season will be here!
