Toronto, ON- Red Prince® Apples, produced by Binkley Apples in Thornbury Ontario are very proud to have received three awards for outstanding designs including:

  • Gold-PAC Global Leadership Award
  • Applied Arts Design & Craft Award
  • Canadian Packaging Consumers Voice Award



Although Red Prince® apples they are tasty when harvested, something magical happens when they are cellared after a fall harvest like fine wine until the New Year comes.  While they sleep, their flavour and texture are enhanced as the natural sugars and acids mature to elevate the eating experience of this premium apple.  When the Red Prince® awakes from its beauty rest, this fragrant deep red apple has a tangy sweet taste and crunchy bite that everyone will enjoy eating fresh.

With a limited availability, Red Prince® apples are similar to the release of an exclusive vintage wine. Red Prince® apples are released each year on January 1st. Over 100,000 cartons will make the trek from Thornbury Ontario, on the shores of Georgian Bay to retailers all over North America this winter season and will be available while supplies last, hopefully through to summer.
