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 Cameo Apples – This apple is a chance seedling, thought to be a cross between Red and Golden Delicious apples. It’s one of the top nine apples grown in Washington state!

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 Ataulfo Mangoes – These mangoes are smaller, usually yellow, and differently shaped than the large round Atkins/Kent mangoes you most often see.  They are also sometimes called Champagne mangoes, which does a better job of calling out how good these are.  The flesh is soft and very juicy, with less fiber than an Atkins mango.  Sometimes they can be very sour.  They are ready to eat when they yield to gentle pressure, though some prefer them once the skin is slightly wrinkled and very soft.

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 TDE Triple Cross Mandarin – Buck Brand – Deer Creek Heights Ranch – It’s called a Triple-Cross Mandarin because it is a cross of Temple Tangor (AKA Royal Mandarin or Temple Orange), an Encore Mandarin (late Mandarin variety), and a Dancy Mandarin. Easy to peel, seedless, low acid, bright orange, sweet, and richly flavored.

Organic Romanesco – They call it a cauliflower, which it is kind of, but it tastes more like broccoli. It’s spiraling crowns are hypnotic!
