The caramel fruit dip found in produce departments at grocery stores nationwide was developed at Minnesota Harvest in 1986. Our Caramel Apple Topper was the first of its kind, and it's still the best! We make it from scratch right at the orchard with our original, superior recipe. Caramel Apple Topper is available by mail order if you can't come to the orchard in person. It's much better than all of the commercial imitations in grocery stores. You'll find out! Keeps six months. No need to refrigerate. To order, click on the Minnesota Harvest website at right.
