Gravenstein Harvest Kicks Off the Hood River Valley Harvest
By: Mary Pellegrini
The Gravenstein apple is considered by many to be one of the best all-around apples with a sweet, tart flavor and is great for baking and cooking, especially for apple sauce and cider.
The Gravenstein Apple harvest represents the kickoff of the annual Hood River Valley harvest. Thousands of acres of apples and pears will be harvested for the next two months, providing over 40 varieties of apples and 30 varieties of pears.
