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.

Ranging in flavor from sweet to tart, tender to explosively crisp,
