An American variety, the Jonagold apple has a balanced blend of both its parents’ flavors, offering the sweet-tart taste of the Jonathan apple and the aromatic honey-like scent of the Golden Delicious. Large, crisp and juicy, it’s perfect for desserts. Use them to make pies, cobblers, muffins or applesauce. Or pair them with robust cheeses on a sandwich, pizza or cheese board. The possibilities are endless!

The best watermelons on the planet, grown in Oregon!

A good source of vitamins A and C, watermelon makes a sensational snack on sultry days. Simply slice and serve, or use it to create culinary delights, like grilled watermelon flatbread, summer salads or slushies.

Tip: For the perfect melon, choose one that’s heavy for its size yet hollow-sounding when knocked on. And look for a yellow or light spot on the bottom, which indicates ripeness.
