Make the perfect apple pie with Colorado grown apples
Last updated 2/17/2021 at 9:42am
This February, we are falling in love with Colorado apples. Apples rank among the top three fruits produced around the world. They are easy to store and transport, and as a result, are typically available year-round in the U.S. Apples are rich in quercetin and pectin, both of which are credited for supplying apples with their health benefits.
According to the Colorado Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association, fruit and vegetable production is a nearly $300 million dollar industry in Colorado, with more than 60,000 growing acres primarily in Fremont, Mesa, Durango, and Delta Counties.
