ON A VERY LIMITED BASIS, WE OFFER KIKU® APPLES FOR INDIVIDUAL SALE.
Our KIKU® store is currently closed. Check back with us in November 2015 when we have the next crop of delicious KIKU® apples available for sale.
KIKU® is a remarkable apple that inspires a devoted following among apple connoisseurs. Further, KIKU® are only grown by select growers in a few locations around the country. Rice Fruit Company is proud to be the sole representative offering KIKU® on the East Coast.
The KIKU® apple was originally discovered in the middle of an apple orchard in Japan. Luis Braun, an apple grower from northern Italy, identified the red-striped apple as uniquely different from all the other apples in the orchard. He was mesmerized by its super sweet, full-flavored taste and he immediately bought the rights to the apple and named it KIKU®. Once back home in Italy, he set out to grow and share this wonderful new apple with the world. Since then, the Braun family has licensed a few select growers around the world to grow and sell KIKU®.
For these reasons, we offer KIKU® for individual sale. This opportunity is only available while supplies last.
The KIKU® are shipped in a single tray pack size which is approximately 11 pounds of fruit. We ship through UPS. Due to their state regulations, we do NOT ship to Arizona, California or Hawaii.
We hope you will enjoy this delightful and delicious apple.
