Local Apple Varieties from Frecon Farms
November 19, 2020
Just arrived: Gold Rush, Stayman-Winesap, and Snap Dragon from Frecon Farms!
This morning our buyer Alex Scaletta presented these apples and we did a tasting. These varieties have complex flavor profiles and are excellent in baking applications, or enjoy as a hand fruit. Please check out the video below.
These are apples for grownups. They’re dense with robust flavors for a more discerning palate. The gold rush apples have a hint of cider to them. My favorite the snap dragons have a spicy tinge of clove.
The purpose of this blog to share my 10 years of produce industry insight. Enjoy more fresh produce, buy with confidence, and let’s move fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables to the center of the plate!
