RubyFrost apples have returned to stores nationwide, according to Crunch Time Apple Growers, a group of more than 150 apple growers across New York state. One of the best dessert apples, known for its tart yet sweet flavor, RubyFrost apples are naturally non-browning due to their high vitamin C.

This year’s crop of RubyFrost apples are both delicious and stunning in color. Consumers will enjoy adding the allure to their favorite dishes or snacks. RubyFrost continues to maintain its reputation as the perfect apple for baking, with consistent growth at top retailers year after year.

“What sets RubyFrost apart is its ability to strike a balance,” said Jessica Wells, executive director of Crunch Time Apple Growers. “RubyFrost apples are not overly sweet, making them the ideal choice for cooking or baking. They’re just sweet enough that they make a great quick snack, and are also slow to brown, making them an ideal addition to a charcuterie board.”
