Labor Day is coming up this weekend, and with it comes back-to-school, changing leaves and (of course) fall fruit in season! In this week’s box we include the season’s first organic apples and pears with Gala apples and Bartlett pears. This year, our apples and pears are coming from a new farmer for us. New Leaf Fruit is located in Colorado, and they grow a wide variety of organic fruits. Our local Minnesota apples are in very low supply this year because we had an early spring followed by a hard frost in April, which sadly froze the apple blossoms and decimated the crop. This year, we’re very excited to try Eric and Rosemerry’s apples and pears for the first time. We hope you will like them and let us know what you think!
