People say things like this of the Nittany apple, "Probably one of the crispest, juiciest apples I've ever eaten. My new favorite. Can't wait to try it in an apple pie."

Watch "Apple Harvest in PA" Video.
Large-sized fruit, attractive orange-red coloration, yellow, (desirable color for sauce) stay-firm flesh (perfect for baking usages), great flavor and crunch for fresh-eating, developed at the " local" Penn State University ...and grown in the Kauffman orchards here in the southeast corner of the Keystone State!

The researchers at PSU came up with a good thing when they crossed the ever-popular Golden Delicious variety with the Pennsylvania-famous York Imperial (discovered in 1820 in next-door-to-Lancaster, York County.) Then they made a Lion of a choice by naming the new selection "Nittany." (College sports fans understand all this!) The Nittany Lions, of course, were named after Mount Nittany, a prominent ridge in central PA, which word "is derived from the Algonquian word Nit-A-Nee meaning 'single mountain'." (Wikipedia)

Dare we articulate our deepest, innermost thoughts on the Nittany? Let's try it! We think it's just possible that Nittany is Pennsylvania's own (very) satisfactory (and more economical!) answer to the Honeycrisp variety, of whose fame you may be aware? We here and near to Nittany's birthplace would love to hear your thoughts on this relatively new, relatively unknown "mountain-top experience" of an apple! Just click the Product Reviews tab above, to let all of us know!

More outstanding apple varieties grown in our GMO-free orchards in Bird-in-Hand which are somewhat similar to Nittany include Idared and Pink Lady.

Can you believe it? You don't even have to drive to an orchard to get fruit anymore! You can just buy one (or two!) of these boxes, packed with fresh, crunchy Kauffman apples (Nittany at that!) that are also juicy, tasty, and good, Good, GOOD for your health.

The boxes we use feature high-density foam cushioning. Each apple occupies its own foam slot for protection, and we pack the box with fruit that is of highest quality. However, we have no control over distance, storage, temperature, or handling during transit, so if the fruit arrives overripe or spoiled, we most likely will not offer a refund, although you're welcome to contact us about it. We offer 2nd Business Day and Next Business Day shipping for apple lovers who'd like to take an extra step in protecting the fruit during shipping. This item is not available for sale in or to California (certainly not after that 2017 Rose Bowl game!), Oregon, and Washington.
