Domex Superfresh Growers to Showcase Autumn Glory Apples at PMA Fresh Summit
- by Jordan Okumura
YAKIMA, WA - Fall is here, and Domex Superfresh Growers® signature Autumn Glory® Apples are coming off the trees just in time for PMA Fresh Summit. The proprietary Autumn Glory variety is crisp and juicy with subtle notes of caramel and hints of cinnamon. Some tasters report an apple cider taste, embodying the essence of fall.
"Autumn Glory provides a consistently delicious and exciting eating experience, and it is easy to grow, producing attractive, eye-catching fruit," says Mike Preacher, Director of Marketing and Customer Relations for Domex Superfresh Growers®, according to a press release.
The Autumn Glory apple is the pride and joy of Superfresh Growers, meeting the company’s high standards. Grown both organically and conventionally, Autumn Glory has options for all consumers and retailers. Superfresh Growers will be producing 100,000 boxes this year, with a projected growth to more than one-million boxes in the next five years. With the volume increasing, Autumn Glory will soon be a year-long program. For the 2016-2017 season, Autumn Glory will be available starting November and until supplies last.
Superfresh Growers is pleased to announce they are a finalist at the Sensory Experience Contest at PMA Fresh Summit on Friday afternoon. The recipe contest features bold, fresh, and innovative recipes that will be judged by both kids and produce professionals. Autumn Glory will be featured in their recipe, Open Faced Autumn Glory Sliders.
These kid-friendly apple sliders use Autumn Glory apple slices as the "bun," and feature three unique toppings. Each topping accents the caramel-cinnamon notes of the apple: Yogurt & Granola; Peanut Butter, Banana & Candied Bacon; and Kale Pesto & Prosciutto. Fresh Summit attendees are invited to sample recipes from the winners and finalists during the Fresh Ideas in Action Reception on Friday, October 14, from 4:00-5:00 PM.
Autumn Glory apples will also be sampled at the Domex Superfresh Growers' booth all weekend long. Stop by booth #2173 for a taste of autumn!
