Apple, Spartan EACH

$1.09 $0.89

Excellent Keeper

Its crisp white flesh is aromatic and exceptionally juicy with a balanced sweet-tart apple flavor.

The Spartan apple was first developed in 1936 at the Summerland Research Station in British Columbia by agricultural breeder R.C. Palmer. Once made available for commercial distribution the Spartan apple was quick to become one of the more popularly grown apple varieties in British Columbia. In addition to British Columbia the Spartan apple today can be found growing in Oregon, Washington State, California and apple growing regions across Europe.

The fresh apples will keep 3-6 months when stored in a cool, dry, and dark place. Avoid storing your apples near onion or potatoes. They'll readily absorb the flavor of other foods and could ripen prematurely.
Store your apples in a cool basement, garage, shed, fruit cellar or refrigerator. The ideal storage temperature is 30-32°F with 90 percent humidity. Apples are likely to suffer freeze damage if the temperature dips below 30°; and will ripen quickly, if the temperature rises above 40°, so do your best to match these conditions.

The Spartan apple is an excellent cooking and dessert apple. Its firm flesh will hold its shape and maintain its sweet flavor when baked into pies, crisps and turnovers. Diced or grated Spartan apple will add sweetness and moisture to savory preparations such as fritters, cheese puffs and chutney. Its aromatic juice lends itself to cider, soups and jams. The flavor of the Spartan apple pairs well with blue cheese, parsnip, cranberries, pork, walnuts, onion, ginger, clove and rosemary.

Spartan apples are low in calories, high in water content and offer a fair amount of vitamins A, C and B. Spartan apples are also high in folic acid and the dietary fiber pectin
