They say Gravenstein Apples make the BEST apple sauce, which is why we thought we’d give you the chance to pick up a case to make some for your family! Grown by Norm Lehne Garden & Orchard (Roseburg) using IPM growing methods.
The history of the Gravenstein Apple is long and storied as compared to many of the current apple varieties, having been cultivated since the 1700’s. It’s a favorite here in our region due to its versatility, depth of flavor, and remarkable saucing qualities. This fruit has a wonderful tang, combined with sweet flavor; the apples themselves are medium to large, while the flesh is creamy white and honey scented with a crisp, smooth texture. In addition to be eaten fresh out of hand, Gravensteins are perfect for cider, sauce, or dried fruits. They’re good in pies and jams too.
