Apples, Vista Bella

Apples, Vista Bella
(Apples, Vista Bella) Vista Bella apples are tart, crisp (when fresh picked), early eating apples that ripen in late July and early August, and they are usually the first apple we see at the farm stores.  They are also sometimes referred to as "vistabella apples.  It is a cross between a July Red, Williams Early Red, and Starr apple, and was developed in New Jersey in 1934.  Vista Bella apples are not good storage apples, as they lose their crispness in about 3 days after picking.  We have seen Vista Bella apples only on sale in farm stores.  Like all early apples, they are best refrigerated immediately after purchasing.  We could not find any specific nutritional information for Vista Bella apples so we have included average apple nutritional information.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
