New apple varieties are continually being discovered all over the world, some of which Starr Ranch Growers has in the works. We have new variety plantings in our orchards in the Quincy and Yakima areas and also New Zealand. The consumer is always looking for that extraordinary piece of fruit with great color, quality and flavor. We have three new varieties we are introducing over the next five years that fit that category.
