Northeast Cortland Eco Apple™
Featuring Clark Brothers Orchards, Ashfield, MA Cortland Eco Apple™ Certified Apples:
Cortland is considered as moderately juicy and fairly sweet compared to McIntosh.
Writer Roger Yepsen describes Cortland as a “friendly” apple in his book Apples. “The flavor is tart and tangy,” he writes, “but not emphatically so, and juicy. It is a good apple to accompany a sandwich.” He recommends it for pies, sauce, and cider, too. Cortland ripen in late September or early October.
Freeze Drying provides a crisp texture and surprising "Fresh Fruit" taste. Eat with your favorite sandwich, as a side, for a more nutritionally complete lunch. Delightful!
