Apples, Sweet Apples: A Local Love Story

Apples, Sweet Apples: A Local Love Story

When you think about fruits that are grown in the Central Valley, you’re probably imagining Apricots, Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Grapes, Apples and…! Wait, what the? Apples? Yes, you read it correctly. It’s a little-known fact that some of the most delicious Apples are grown around the California Delta and Linden areas. That’s literally right up the road from us!

Because it’s not a crop that takes up the same kind of area that Almonds do, it may not occur to you that many varieties of Apple thrive in this area. We’re talking about varieties such as juicy Fujis, Granny Smiths and Galas. They just love the fertile soil and climate in this area. You know we’re all about keeping it local whenever possible. And we do! We can do it the majority of the time, and when our local supply isn’t quite enough, we may bring in Apples from as far away as Washington state, which is well-known for its Apples. Luckily for all of us, this year we’re able to keep it totally local!

Now that Fall is upon us, it’s a natural time to think of cooler days, breaking those sweaters out of storage and kicking back with some Apples. And we make it easy for you!
