TASTY RECIPES WITH APPLES
Did you know that Washington established the first grade standards in the nation for apples? In 1915, the state started categorizing apples by quality, including color, shape, sugar level, crispness, and condition. Eight years later, the US Department of Agriculture followed suit. National grade standards for apples were introduced in 1923.
The same arid climate, plentiful water, and advanced growing techniques that make Washington one of the premier apple-growing areas in the world also make it one of the finest places to grow organic fruit.
