 Apples, well they are utterly amazing. Some apple types have been developed over millennia for eating, others for cooking, and others for juice and hard cider. Apple varieties have been bred to grow everywhere: the cold mountains of Switzerland; warm weather apples that can be grown in Texas and Hawaii; and the thirty or so varieties we currently have growing at our small farm on the Central Coast of California.

With such incredible diversity, it’s a shame most people ever encounter four or five standard varieties in the supermarket. There are over 7000 varieties of apples domesticated all over the world. With this box of heirloom apple varieties in your hands, I hope to widen appreciation of the incredible flavor spectrum in the apple world.

Here’s the thing about heirloom apples, and why you don’t see them in the stores anymore. They are often small, and they rarely produce in huge quantities like standard commercial apples. Often, they look downright ugly, and some varieties have russeted skin, which is a nice way to say, tough and leathery. But the taste spectrum, the flavors, the richness and diversity … I hope you love it!
