Available This Fall: 3 New Apples That Will Rival the Reigning Honeycrisp – Food & Wineanna
“A combination of Honeycrisp and Fuji, the EverCrisp offers the best of each apple: sweet, juicy, and crunchy. Schultz has been hearing buzz about the apple for the past few years at the Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable convention in Hershey, Pennsylvania.”
“There are about 1200 to 1600 different farms that attend, so all the people who grow the trees and sell the supplies are there,” he says. “You ask them, and they’re all saying EverCrisp is gonna be it.”
The first trees of this variety were planted in 2013, and now there are over 350 orchards around the country growing them. “We are very excited about this apple because it is growing fast in popularity, availability, and demand,” says Amanda Cohen, a spokesperson for EverCrisp apples. “After quickly selling out last year, supply is tripling this year and the apple is available at farm stands and grocery stores across the country.” Another big selling point of the EverCrisp: it stays fresh and sweet for months (hence the name.) As word spreads and more farms get on board, keep an eye out for this apple in the coming years.
