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.
