Apple of the Month

Apple of the Month

Packed with antioxidants and fiber, apples are full of nutrients. Easy to enjoy year-round, we are highlighting our favorite seasonal apples in a monthly feature. Check out the apple of the month and some delicious apple recipes below! 

Enjoy the sweet flavor of Sonya apples, our apple of the month. When you bite into a Sonya apple, be prepared for an explosion of sweet juicy flavor. The Sonya is a relatively new apple, developed in the South Island of New Zealand and is a cross between a Red Delicious and Gala. New Zealand’s unique combination of warm summer sunshine, crisp winter frosts and clean pure waters means these apples ripen slowly, naturally, with the absolute minimum of human intervention, so they develop a naturally crisp texture and intense flavor.

“What I love about Sonya is that it’s not just another apple,” said Grant O., a New Zealand grower. “It’s crunchy, juicy and sweeter than sweet with no hint of acidity. It’s a large apple with a unique elongated shape which gives it a very distinctive look and separates it from pretty much everything else on the shelf.”
