My husband is a McIntosh snob and even though out here in the northwest we can buy McIntosh apples from Canada they simply won't do--they cannot compete with the crispness and flavor of these apples from Vermont. It is a once-a-year treat and worth every penny!

Real New England Cortlands
My mother lives in southern Maine. There's a farm stand on the way to her home. I always stop there to pick up a bag of just picked Cortland apples. This year I went a month early and the Cortlands were not ready yet. I was very disappointed. So I was thrilled when I saw the Vermont Country Store had Cortlands for delivery. The box just arrived today and the apples are round, red, and beautiful. They are as crunchy and juicy as I remember from Maine. Thank you Vermont Country Store.

OMG! The first bite brought me back to "sitting in my uncle's apple orchard". The apples are crunchy, juicy and so delicious. I will definitely be ordering more!
Thank you Orton family!

I don't believe for one minute that those apples were genuine Cortlands. I am a native of Wisconsin, where they also grow them. So I have had real Cortlands by personal purchase and by online order, so I know what they taste like. Yours tasted like any miscellaneous apple I could have picked up from the supermarket here in Montana, where Cortlands are not heard of. No more orders from you.

What Our Customers Are Saying about Our Vermont Apples …
"I received my order of McIntosh apples a few days ago, and they were everything I had hoped they would be: beautiful shape and coloring, delicious scent, crisp, and wonderfully tart and juicy. Just like the Macs I remember from New York! We haven't been able to get McIntosh apples here for years, so thank you, Vermont Country Store, for offering these wonderful apples. You've made my day . . . and I can't wait to make my mom's apple crisp with these beauties!" - Mary, Bellevue, NE
