Summerland, British Columbia-based Okanagan Specialty Fruits, developer and grower behind the Arctic apple,  announce d5 oz. and 10 oz. packages of Arctic Granny and Arctic Golden fresh apple slices will be available on Amazon Fresh starting April 26.

“For a busy family, Arctic apple slices are a perfectly fresh and healthy snack for at home, on-the-go, and lunch-box,” said Neal Carter, president and founder of Okanagan Specialty Fruits (OSF). “They’re naturally sweet, provide a full serving of fruit, and a great source for Vitamin C. We think Arctic apples are the best-tasting apples, and we’re so excited to let families try them!”

Arctic Apples will be available to Amazon Fresh shoppers in Sacramento, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Phoenix, & Las Vegas.

“We are thrilled to work with Amazon Fresh. It is exciting to have Arctic apple slices delivered directly to shoppers,” said Carter. “Having the ability to be part of consumers’ Amazon Fresh grocery order is an incredible milestone for us. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship.”

Arctic apple slices retain their fresh appearance and flavor long after conventional apple slices.
