Since Arctic® apples were officially approved in the U.S. last week, we have been overwhelmed with the huge numbers of well wishes, inquiries, media requests and growers asking to plant trees. However, there’s one letter we received that may just be our favorite of all!
In what was perhaps a good luck charm as it arrived just as we got news of Arctic® apple deregulation, on Friday we received a hand-written letter from nine year old Jake Allen Lutick-Fuller. Jake is clearly a fan of apples (particularly delectable ones!), but he knows that many people are not so enthusiastic about browning. He had some great advice and well wishes for us, and was kind enough to let us post his letter here:
And Jake, if you’re reading this – we’ve just sent you a letter containing a special surprise for you and your family to enjoy! Also, please make sure to get in touch with us in another 9 years as we have a feeling you have big things in your future and we may just have a position for you at Okanagan Specialty Fruits!!
