Countdown to Opal Apples

It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year! Well, one of them, anyway. It’s almost the time of year when sunny yellow Opal apples are available in all of our stores.

Why do we get so excited about Opals? For starters, they’re exceptionally crunchy, not too tart and not too sweet, a gorgeous golden color, and best of all—they don’t turn brown after you cut them. That makes them especially well-suited for lunchboxes and salads. That’s why we have our countdown started for the first day when these crunchy orbs make their way to our produce section:

But there’s more to the Opal story than the flavor. Our Opals are grown by Ralph and Cheryl Broetje in Prescott, Washington. The Broetjes are committed to making sure that every acre of their Prescott, Washington orchard contributes positively to their people and the planet, using sustainable farming methods and investing in the success of each employee. And, because they pick, pack and ship right on site, their fruit travels less, reducing fuel costs and damage to the fruit.

When you eat an Opal, know that with every bite you’re part of the cycle of good, supporting the workers and farmers who bring these gems of the apple kingdom to you. Available for a limited time!
