April’s HarvestClub Americana™ Fruit is the Golden Supreme Apple.  This brilliant yellow apple is a delicious crisp sweet apple that is thought to have originated from Clay County, West Virginia.

It is wonderful in salads, fruit sauces, and even apple butter. These large apples are a wonderful treat on a hot day when chilled.  The crisp flesh is so juicy and refreshing.

One fun fact about this apple is that it was designated the official state fruit of West Virginia by the state Senate in 1955.

We hope you enjoy these wonderful apples this upcoming April!

In 1942, Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The fruit was exceptional. This orchard and fruit growing wisdom was passed down from father to son. In 1999, The Fruit Company was founded by Roy's grandsons, Scott & Addison Webster. Today, Scott runs the business as President and CEO. The Fruit Company packs and ships beautiful fruit gifts around the nation.
