Produce deals around town


If you like the taste of Fuji apples--you will love the Kiku apple.  It has earned the reputation of being one of the sweetest apples available. 

It is described as a crunchy, sweet apple that is mildly juicy. Just a hint of tartness in this apple. The inside is off white and a good addition to salads. The big big question is, is this apple better than the Fuji? Try it and you decide.
