Mountain Rose Apples
These are the apple of our eye (and of our pie).
Ever heard a name so sweet as Mountain Rose? The aptly-named apples are a truly unique heirloom variety, grown only in the Mount Hood River Valley of Oregon by a small multi-generation family farm. Their strikingly bright red flesh is the first thing you'll notice after taking a bite (when not intoxicated by their strawberry aroma and their slightly sweet and mildly tart flavor). The apples' flesh stays bright red even after being cooked—read: pink apple pie ahead!
Mountain Rose apples are extremely rare and in limited supply only through the end of November, so get 'em while they last!
Mikuni Wild Harvest ships out their fresh fruit express on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. This way, your fruit will arrive by week's end and won't sit in a warehouse over the weekend! If you order on a Thursday or Friday, please allow additional shipping time. Your patience will be rewarded with the freshest fruit!
