Check out these new and fabulous products coming down the pike!


Organic Kanzi Apples – “Kanzi” is Swahili for “Hidden Treasure”. And a treasure it is: super crisp and juicy, this apple is sweet, tangy and delightful!  It has the same parents (Gala and Braeburn) as its “sister apple” Jazz, and is therefore similar.  Kanzi are rounder than Jazz, and slightly less dense (Jazz are pretty hard!) with a aromatic and zesty flavor.

Organic Opal Apples – Opal apples are a cross between Golden Delicious and Topaz. The bright color of this jewel-like apple is unreal.  It’s crisp, juicy, sweet and slightly floral.  Fun fact: they sent these to SPACE with astronauts a couple years ago.  It’s a space apple, no big deal 🙂

Organic Ambrosia Apples – This is a fine, crisp textured, low-acid apple.  This beauty is delicious.

Organic Envy Apples- Envy apples are crunchy and sweet, and very popular on the West Coast.

Organic Lulu Navel Oranges, Buck Brand: Deer Creek Heights Ranch – Sweeter than other navel varieties, this Buck Brand navel orange is characteristically low in acid, and seedless!

Organic Tango Mandarin – Seedless, easy to peel, super sweet!

Organic Purple Stokes Sweet Potato – Seriously purple sweet potatoes have even more anthocyanins (antioxidant that makes some produce red/purple) and so are even better for you.  Purple produce tends to lose its color when cooked. Let’s see!
