York / Mountaineer Apples - 10lb box

York / Mountaineer Apples - 10lb box

Availability: In stock

$28.00

Flavor, Texture, Usage
While the York / Mountaineer is a wonderful eating apple, it's one of the few apples to retain the shape of a slice when used in baking. This makes it a "must-have" for serious apple-pie bakers.


Availability
This apple should be available for sale towards the end of October.


History
This unique apple was discovered in York, Pennsylvania, in the 1800's. Yorks / Mountaineers grow best in certain areas of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. The shape of a York / Mountaineer makes it unique since it is a large apple, flat on the top with angled sides. Yorks / Mountaineers were popular with Virginia's early settlers because they kept all winter long in cool dirt cellars, just like a fine wine. A month in storage after picking brings out the Yorks' / Mountaineers' unique flavors.

A Word from Mother Nature on Shipping
Please note, that because we are dealing with a product of nature, we reserve the right to allow up to 2 weeks, to process an order. If your order needs to be delayed for any reason, we will notify you. We typically ship apples on Mondays and Tuesdays to avoid the shipment being held at a depot over the weekend. On some occasions, if we know that FedEx can deliver in less than 3 days, we may ship your order on Wednesdays.
