The Frostbite™ Apple packs a punch. It's almost tangy, very sweet, and juicy. Biting into a Frostbite™ is almost like biting into a piece of sugarcane. Savoring its juice tastes almost like molasses melting in your mouth. By its late harvest season, Frostbite™ fruit is only about 2 1/2 inches in diameter. Its firm and juicy, cream colored flesh, delivers small, intensely sweet bites. This apple is great for making cider. Keep 3 to 4 months refrigerated.
