New York Apple Association Updates Website In Time For Harvest

With the New York state apple harvest just weeks away, the New York Apple Association launched its new website NYAppleCountry.com.

The new website offers more of the information that consumers want, such as a variety guide, recipes and interactive maps to help find local suppliers of apples and cider. The new information comes with a colorful, friendly new look, with more pictures and videos.

“Most of the visitors to our site want to learn more about New York state varieties, to get recipes and to find a local supplier, so we literally put that information front and center on the new site,” said NYAA President Jim Allen. “The updated site is also smartphone-and tablet-friendly, so you can access it wherever you are, however you want to.”

The refreshed site features:
• profiles on 24 of New York state’s top apple varieties, including Honeycrisp, McIntosh and Gala, and new varieties SnapDragon and RubyFresh;
• almost 100 recipes using apples or apple products;
• facts about the New York apple industry and apples in general, as well as frequently asked questions;
• a large nutrition section, including apple nutrition facts, health and weight benefits of eating apples, and research updates from NYAA Consulting Dietitian Linda Quinn.
