Frieda’s Specialty Produce is now shipping organic heirloom apples.
Los Alamitos, Calif.-based Frieda’s ships Oregon-grown cox’s orange pippin, matsu, orleans reinette, roxbury russet, arkansas black and other organic heirloom apple varieties, according to a news release.
Frieda’s recommends retailers and distributors pre-book orders months in advance due to the short growing season and limited availability.
“Heirloom apples are especially flavorful and are a perfect symbol of fall,” Karen Caplan, Frieda’s president and chief executive officer, said in the release. “And because ours are organic and locally grown in Oregon, they are extremely popular.”
