The Apple Truck rolls into Tampa Bay next week, pre-order apples now

It’s fall and guess what that means for people who live outside of Florida…apple picking! I’ve never been but from the pictures and videos I’ve seen all over social media, it looks like so much fun. I’d love to pick a whole bunch of apples and just turn them into whatever dessert I desire on a specific day. Florida is in luck because there is a business out of Michigan that’s bringing their apples down to the Sunshine State to give us a taste of what they offer.

The Apple Truck, a Michigan-based “rolling” fruit truck, delivers fresh fruit to southern states that don’t have the opportunity to try out hand-picked Michigan apples. This fall, the truck is traveling to 90 stops throughout states including Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Florida, and South Carolina on their Fall 2021 Tour.

“We understand the joy that comes from biting into a truly fresh apple,” said MariAnn and Dale Apley, founders of The Apple Truck. “With our apples, they are picked and delivered to you within a few days, ready to eat, juicy and delicious.”

The Apleys are sixth-generation Michiganders who grew up eating the state’s fresh-picked apples. They’re determined to bring the joy and excitement to the south with The Apple Truck.

The Apple Truck offers 20 lb. boxes of apples. Each box features two varieties of apples, which can be used for eating, baking, freezing…basically whatever you like! Each box can be pre-ordered in advance starting now through the official website Place your order at least 5 days in advance to the truck’s stop.

Here’s what you can pre-order:

  • 20-pound box of Michigan apples $45
  • 1/2 gallon of Honeycrisp Apple Cider $7
  • The Special, comprised of two boxes of apples and two 1/2 gallons of cider $100
