YAKIMA, WA – Customers are taking a bite out of Autumn this winter—Autumn Glory® apples, that is. Domex Superfresh Growers’ apple variety is gaining speed in sales; at 280 percent growth in comparison with last November, Autumn Glory apples are ranking at number 18 of the U.S.’s top 20 apple varieties.
Based on percentage, the sales growth is among the largest seen in any apple variety, the company explained in a recent press release—IRI scan data ending 12/3/2017.
According to Superfresh, Joan B., a consumer of the apple, writes, “They are truly magnificent. I bought one without knowing anything about them, and even my uncultured palate thought they tasted like cider. They are aptly named. Glorious!”
Consumers seemingly can’t get enough of this fan-favorite apple variety. The news is spreading on social media, too.
Blogger Lauren Pariseau states, “Firm texture, skin that snaps, and a noisy-in-a-good-way bite is a solid start to winning over New England apple lovers. But the smell and the taste, oh man you guys, pull up a chair and break out your scratch and sniff screens.”
Superfresh Growers holds exclusive worldwide rights to grow and market Autumn Glory apples. The sweet-tasting apple offers caramel and cinnamon notes to those who take a bite into the high-ranking variety. The apple is available through April for conventional and February for organic this 2017-2018 season. Autumn Glory apples will become available year-round as volume and acreage continue to increase.
