National Apple Day
Braeburn, Discovery and Red Jonagold are just a few of the many varieties that we have. Each one is more delicious than any other!
Each year, the orchards produce a slew of beautiful colors, including gold, crimson and green. This rolling bounty is followed by the rich aroma of apple pies and spicy ciders (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic), as well as all the other tastes and smells that come with this seasonal treat.
Celebrate everything National Apple Day-related!
People from all over the globe gather to celebrate the best harvest and share in the joy of apples. There are many events that range from small to large in scale in different parts of the country. These events allow enthusiasts to come together and share their recipes, cider and advice on growing apples properly.
The first National Apple Day celebration was held in Covent Garden in 1990. Since then, it has been celebrated in many other parts of the world. It is now more than a celebration of apples.
Apples can be enjoyed every day, not just on National Apple Day. As the old saying goes, “an apple a days keeps the doctor away”.
Participating in National Apple Day celebrations can be easy and enjoyable. Enjoy the day with friends or alone by trying these fun ideas:
You can start a National Apple Day celebration by eating one of the many delicious apple varieties. A fresh, juicy apple, whether it is yellow, green, pink, or red, can be cut, sliced or taken out of its center. You can eat it as is or dip it into peanut butter, Nutella, caramel sauce, or cream cheese dip.
Slice an apple and place it on a sandwich. Dice it and cook it for a few hours to make apple butter or applesauce. Wrap it in pastry and bake it. Or chop it up and add it to pancakes. It doesn’t matter how you eat it, everyone can appreciate the delicious fruit on National Apple Day.
