New apple all the "Rave"

Another apple cross variety from the University of Minnesota is making its way to shelves in Door County. Known as a First Kiss apple in Minnesota, the new “Rave” variety is a cross between juicy Honeycrisp and tart Monarch apple varieties. Wood Orchard owner Steve Wood says what they like about it is the void it fills when people really want an apple.

Wood says they planted 10 Rave trees this year for harvesting before planting additional 400 next year. The University of Minnesota is also behind another Wood Orchard favorite, the SweeTango, which made its season debut earlier this week.
