If an apple a day is known to keep the doctor away, how about orchards full of a luscious taste of summer perfection – the Gravenstein apple? It’s the ideal combination of sweet and tart with firm flesh and a lovely green skin, kissed with red. To quote famed horticulturalist Luther Burbank, “…if the Gravenstein could be had throughout the year, no other apple need be grown.”
