New Apple Varieties

Chelan Fresh is your home for the best selection of new apple varieties, grown in the heart of Central Washington where warm days and cool nights make for the best growing conditions.    

Visit us at PMA Orlando booth #1789 to learn more about all of our new varieties, our comprehensive availability of Cascade Crest Organic apples, pears, stonefruit, and our Category Management programs that are available.

SugarBee® is the new apple in town and is sure to steal your heart with her Sweet as can Bee flavor! SugarBee® was born from a bee who pollenated a Honeycrisp blossom and an unknown variety and created the crisp, juicy SugarBee® apple we love today.  With her honeycomb PLU sticker and consumer friendly 2lb pouch, SugarBee® apples are available for a short time this year with more available in the years to come.

Lucy™Rose and Lucy™Glo are in very limited supply for the 2018 season but promise to be a consumer favorite.
