More than 15 varieties are coming into season to satisfy shoppers’ demand
LOS ALAMITOS, CA (September 2015) – Over 15 varieties of Organic Heirloom Apples are available in short bursts throughout the season from Frieda’s Specialty Produce, starting now with Ribston Pippin, Cox’s Orange Pippin, and Cortland.
Due to the short season and limited availability, most retailers and distributors pre-book theirs months in advance.
“The appeal of Organic Heirloom Apples is the variety of color, texture, and flavor profile,” said Karen Caplan, President and CEO of Frieda’s. “Not only are they a big hit with shoppers, these apples add color break and attractive variety to your fall display.”
Among the varieties available from Frieda’s are Matsu, Orleans Reinette, Winesap, Northern Spy, and Arkansas Black. Most varieties are also available in baby size. Call Frieda’s today as availability on varieties varies week by week throughout the season.
