August 26, 2022 Minnesota Grown

Minnesotans don’t have to wait until early fall for the crisp, juicy apples our state is known for growing. Early season apple varieties such as First Kiss®, SweeTango®, Zestar!® and RiverBelle are already available at orchards, grocery stores and farmers markets across Minnesota. These varieties are ripe for the picking up to four weeks sooner than Minnesota’s most famous apple, Honeycrisp, marking the first fresh, local apples since last year’s crop.
