Stemilt to introduce Rave apples

Stemilt Growers, well-known fruit growers based in Washington State, hold the license to grow, pack and market the next big thing in apples:  Rave. The name has been announced by the University of Minnesota for their numbered MN55 variety, a cross between Honeycrisp and MonArk.

Stemilt’s marketing director expects small volumes of Rave apples in summer of 2017, anticipating the new variety will reinvent the month of August for the apple category.  He says the apple has similar qualities to the Honeycrisp but inherits MonArk’s ability to ripen early, colour well and maintain a crisp, juicy texture throughout the summer heat.
