Dixon’s is home to our world-famous Champagne apples, a variety discovered and grown first by Fred Dixon. This golden apple with a hint of blush is a firm, good keeper. It’s sweet but spicy, and juicy for baking and eating. We think you have to taste it to fully appreciate the unique taste and texture. And you will be able to taste those and some delicious Zestar, Macoun, McIntosh and Honeycrisp apples when the 2000 trees that were planted in May 2015 begin to produce.

Dixons began growing apples in Wisconsin in 2015 and we are looking forward to our first harvest in 2018. When Dixon’s was in New Mexico, we grew our signature Champagne apples along with Sparkling Burgundy, Red Rome, and Red Delicious. We hope you enjoy this little snippet of info from our New Mexico memory book.
