Introducing the versatile and delicious Cortland apple! With its juicy, crisp texture and a perfect balance of sweet-and-tart flavors, it's no wonder this apple is a favorite for both baking and enjoying fresh.

When it comes to baking, Cortland apples truly shine. Whether you're making apple pies, cobblers, crisps, apple butter, or apple sauce, their natural sweetness and firmness hold up beautifully in the oven, creating a heavenly aroma and a mouthwatering final product.

But it doesn't stop there - Cortland apples are equally delightful when eaten fresh. From salads and kabobs to fruit plates, garnishes, and cheese plates, these apples add a refreshing burst of flavor to any dish. Plus, their unique characteristic of slow browning and discoloration after peeling makes them an ideal choice for raw preparations.

So whether you're a baker looking for the perfect apple for your next creation or simply craving a crisp and juicy snack, look no further than the Cortland apple.
