New Crop Alert: Fresh and Delicious Organic Apples from the Southern Hemisphere

Awe Sum Organics is releasing a new crop after working with Southern Hemisphere growers from Chile, New Zealand and Argentina, Awe Sum Organics has partnered with the best organic farmers in the world for more than 30 years to provide fresh and delicious organic fruit to households.

The company is offering customer programs through the months of June, July and August. The varieties are Royal Gala, Granny Smith, Fuji and Cripps Pink.

“We ship all of our Southern Hemisphere organic apples to the US in ocean containers and are bringing most of them into the Port of Philadelphia because of the reduced carbon footprint,” said David Posner, President and CEO of Awe Sum Organics. “Our studies have found that the amount of carbon or fuel required to ship an ocean container with 1,176 cartons of apples to Philadelphia from the Southern Hemisphere uses 1/12th the amount of carbon or fuel required to ship a truckload of 980 cartons of apples from the west coast of the US to the east coast. Additionally, because our apples are half a year fresher than domestically grown apples at the same time of year, there is an additional carbon savings from the electricity saved from the fact that our apples are stored for six months less time.”
