Solana Gold Organics
Applesauce - Certified Organic and Kosher
Our applesauce is fat free, made from fresh triple washed ripe organic apples.
What makes the Gravenstein such a star?
Horticulturists say its triple chromosome has the strongest will to survive of any apple. Our Gravs, many 100 years old with 30 foot canopies, are grown in Sonoma County's hot dry climate. We purposely don't irrigate. Forcing the trees to seek moisture builds character, crunch and intensifies aroma and flavor.
Giant Sebastopol gravenstein trees have proudly rewarded generations with world-renowned flavor since the 1880 plantings. These original trees, still healthy and in active production, tower with impressive gracefulness on our Appleseed hillsides. Many trunk circumferences are over 7 feet--living tribute to the ambitious tasks performed by determined pioneers. Our century-old trees were planted at a time when horses provided the power and surviving off the land was an adventure; when flavor and character were important. Appleseed Orchards is continuing to produce these old-fashioned apple varieties that we know your family will value for quality and purity.
Our plain / blend applesauce is manufactured from 100% organic apples. Compare it with other sauces. Due to the unique production procedures we have established, you will find our sauce to be crunchier and more flavorful than any sauce in the world.

Ever pick blackberries?
Remember Picking Blackberries?
Now that's a slow lane memory, while you're stuck on the freeway. Remember disappearing to the creek in the heat of summer to pick plump, stain-your-fingers blackberries? Wasn't your dog Old Yeller yapping close behind, while Granddad called you to the porch with fresh lemonade?
Well, OK, OK, that was somebody's memory. Heck, you can use it.
So when you're stuck in the fast lane--when the check's due and the kids are cranky--grab some peace for yourself.
Go back to your freedom days.
A true American folk-hero...John Chapman (1774-1845), was fondly called "Appleseed" by his fellow settlers on the Ohio-Indiana frontier. By his early twenties, John 'Appleseed' was planting riverbank apple seedling nurseries in preparation for demand by settlers 'homesteading land' in those 'Northwest Territories.'
The government homestead requirement was: a dwelling to be constructed, 3 acres of land cleared, and an orchard tto be set out - all within 3 years of claim filing for 160 acres. Property taxes were waived for 5 years. Much land was to be settled, and the durablee apple tree was widely desired and profoundly practical for food, vinegar, hard cider, etc.
Johnny became a hero because by often waiving his customary price of 3cents per tree, many cash-poor families acquired land. His personal eccentricities became legendary. Johnny felt satisfaction in witnessing the genius of nature's Creator: that seeds, trees and fruit were gifted tools for him to earn his liberty by being of service to his fellow man. "Oh, the angels did commune with the good old man."
Enjoy the purity and flavor from Appleseed Orchards!
