***Hidden Rose Apple is currently available for Pre-Order. When placing a Pre-Order, this means the fruit you have ordered is not currently in season, or is extremely limited in season. Your pre-order holds your place in line on our wait list. When Hidden Rose Apple comes into season and is ready to harvest from the trees, you will receive your order as soon as possible.***
Origin: This unique apple was discovered in the 1960s at a fruit farm in Airlie Oregon when the owner took a bite of an apple from a mature tree and found it was pinkish red on the inside. The farm was later sold in 1966, and then 20 years later, the field manager of the farm rediscovered the special tree after taking bite from one of its apples. The scions from tree were then grafted onto other trees. The first Hidden Rose orchard was planted in 1992. The apple is certified by The Oregon Tilth Organization and the United States Department of Agriculture.
Flavor Profile: This apple is pinkish red on the inside and is sweet and tart in flavor. The flavor would best be compared to pink lemonade. These apples have wonderfully crisp skin and soft flesh!
How To Eat: Hidden rose apples are ripe and ready to eat as soon as you receive them! These apples are great for baking and cooking.
First come first serve, any orders that can't be shipped this season will be reserved for next season.
The total weight of each box varies depending on the size, shape, and mass of the fruit:
- Small Box contains up to 2.5-3.5 pounds
- Large Box contains up to 5-7 pounds
We ALWAYS recommend ordering a LARGE BOX for the best value, when compared to a Small Box. Because shipping, handling, and delivery are so expensive per package, the Large Box will contain more fruit and ultimately a better value.
