The Hood River County Fruit Loop Heirloom Apple Celebration –
Remember when Grandma complained that “grocery store” apples today just aren’t the same as the ones that grew on her family’s backyard tree? She’s right. The Fruit Loop’s Heirloom Apple Celebration honors the “heirloom” or “classic” apples that have all but disappeared from commercial orchards producing large volumes of fruit that must store and travel well. Apple varieties must have existed 100 or more years to be considered heirlooms. Discover the wide range of flavors, colors, shapes and textures of more than 20 kinds of heirloom apples. Enjoy fresh-pressed apple cider, hard apple cider, apple cider donuts, desserts made with apples or cider, and much more.
