It was treasured for generations because it remains remarkably fresh after long storage and can be enjoyed right through the spring.
Bill and Andrea at Champlain Orchards are committed to ecological practices and are Eco-Apple certified. Due to challenges of our Northeast climate, they use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and minimally spray their apples to manage pests in conjunction with natural methods.
This apple makes a terrific pie. It is wonderful fresh, cooked or made into applesauce, but does not dry well.
Fresh apples are best stored in their plastic bag in the refrigerator.
