Delicious sweet-tart Gravensteins are a much beloved apple grown primarily in Northern California’s Sonoma County and available only about 2 weeks every summer due to a short growing season. Great for pies, juice, sauce, and eating out of hand!

Gravensteins are an “endangered American food,” as featured on Slow Food USA’s Ark of Taste. There are only a handful of farmers still growing Gravs in Sonoma County. This year, 16 percent of all proceeds from The FruitGuys Gravenstein Apple Box will be donated back to Grav farmers.

Gravenstein apples and delicious recipes! Your purchase helps to ensure this heirloom apple will be around for years to come.

How to Celebrate: August is Gravenstein Month! The Presidium invites you to Sebastopol, CA (Sonoma County) for wonderful, family-friendly apple celebrations, including The Gravenstein Apple Fair on August 9–10, 2014.

Enjoy and be fruitful!
