Autumn Glory Reviews
What Consumers are Saying
"Took some Autumn Glory apples home to my kids last night. I asked my oldest what they tasted like, she said "they taste like sparkling cider without the bubbles". - Jean, CA.
"I just discovered Autumn Glory apples by accident. And I love it. I was at Berkeley Bowl in Berkeley, CA. and noticed this "new" apple. I purchased 2 to try and I love it, more than my old favorite Honeycrisp. So now, I'm kicking myself wondering why I didn't buy more." - Winnie, CA.
"It was sweet, and you could smell the cinnamon. It seriously tasted like a candy/apple juice!" - Survey comment
What the "Pros" are Saying
THE PRODUCE MOM’S TOP 5 – DON’T BE ORDINARY. BE EXTRAORDINARY.
#1. Autumn Glory®
The Autumn Glory was discovered this season by Domex Superfresh Growers. It has a natural cinnamon apple flavor & is hands-down the BEST apple I have ever tasted in my life. Since they were just born in 2011, they are hard to find. You can expect a premium price, but a flavor that merits the expense. Join me as a fan of the Autumn Glory on Facebook.

A brand new kind of apple!
Autumn Glory is a very unique apple. It boasts balanced notes of sweet and tart, with a pronounced hint of caramel. Seriously, you can really taste the caramel! A versatile apple, Autumn Glory works well for baking, in addition to making an excellent fresh snack. We decided to have a little company taste test and everyone was genuinely impressed. Some of the choice comments include “Tastes exactly like apple juice,” and “As good as a caramel apple.” Bottom line, as one member of the B.E.A.N. team so eloquently stated, “It’s really good.”
To the humble taste buds of yours truly, Autumn Glory is subtly reminiscent of a crispy sticky bun. Furthermore, Autumn Glory’s coloration appropriately matches its flavor profile (and name); it is a bright, inviting combination of yellow and red, with the familiar glow of fall colors!
About the grower and the rebirth of the apple
Autumn Glory is Organic, of course, and comes to us from Domex Superfresh Growers (formally Kershaw Companies) in Washington’s Yakima Valley. The Kershaw family has been in the Yakima valley for more than 125 years and Domex’s current president, Robert, represents the fifth generation of Kershaws in the business. They grow high quality, Organic fruit including pears, cherries, stone fruits and a wide variety of really tasty apples.
The arrival of Autumn Glory is indicative of a recent explosion in apple diversity available to consumers. The culinary awakening brought on by the rise of Organics and renewed interest in local foods has paved the way for new apple varieties to find success, and previously overlooked gems to make triumphant returns. Here is an interesting Chicago Tribune article from September that sheds some light on this delightful phenomenon.
We hope you enjoy this truly original treasure. But remember, Autumn Glory’s supplies are very limited, so make sure to get a couple while you can. Bon Appetit!
