Fresh Flavor Magazine

A is for apple. And A is also for autumn—peak season to celebrate right-off-the-tree apples from Washington!

Apples are the most varied food on the planet, according to the U.S. Apple Association. While there are more than 7,500 known varieties of apples grown worldwide and about 2,500 varieties grown in the United States, Haggen is proud to offer you 20 freshly harvested Washington favorites, from Ambrosia to Tango—and 18 more varieties in between. With flavors ranging from tart to sweet, you’re sure to discover an apple or two (or more) to love.

Each apple variety’s unique characteristics means you’ll find plenty of choices for fresh eating, making sauces, pies or baking. Apples have just about as many uses as there are varieties. Curious? Just ask for a sample. Who knows, you may just find a new favorite. We’ve made it easy to help you choose—check out the flavor and usage profiles about each apple at our in-store displays.

Apples like it cold

The best way to store apples is inside a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. Keep them away from cabbage, carrots, and onions since apples can absorb odor.

Core Facts

Apples are a healthy, convenient and delicious snack for kids and adults alike and they make a great addition to a lunch box. Apart from the fact that they taste great and are low in calories—and of course, fat free—an apple a day provides a good source of fiber, vitamins A and C, and healthy antioxidants.  Enjoy!
