Apple fans nationwide have rallied together and voted for Autumn Glory® as a favorite apple in the US Apple Association “Apple Madness” tournament. The tournament brings apple fans together online, voting for their favorite apples from an original 32 varieties in a five-week, five-round online competition.
Autumn Glory beat Lady Alice in the “Fresh 32,” and went on to beat Cortland in the “Vitamin-C-Sixtreen.” Autumn Glory is now in the “Edible Eight,” with Gala as it’s opponenet.
Apple fans have continued their Autumn Glory praise during the tournament:
“I have never had a better tasting apple with the perfect crunch! Autumn Glory could easily be my most favorite fruit!”- Cydne D.
“I just had to tell you how I LOVE Autumn Glory apples!” – José
“Autumn Glory apples are the best apples of my life! My adult son and I are both addicted!” –Mark
After the Edible Eight, Autumn Glory still has the “Fiber Four: and the “National Chomp-ionship” to go! So… to all the Josés, Cydnes and Marks out there…. Let’s do this!
Here’s how it works:
