Apples sheet of 20 x 33 cent U.S. Postage Stamps Issue Date: January 17, 2013 With these Apples stamps, the U.S. Postal
Service proves that apples are not only good-and good for you-but they're also delightful, cheery stamp subjects, just
right for postcards! Some of America's favorite varieties of this popular fruit are shown in these four stamps, each
depicting a different kind: the bright-red Baldwin, the green Granny Smith, the yellow Golden Delicious, and the
multi-colored Northern Spy. The juicy and aromatic Baldwin apple is thought to be native to Massachusetts. These winter
apples are delicious when eaten in season-fresh, cooked, or in baked goods-and are prized by makers of cider. "Spies are
for pies!" The homey little rhyme offers a reminder that generations of cooks have found the Northern Spy apple
delicious when baked in desserts. This variety is also good for cider and juice. Scientists believe this apple, loaded
with vitamin C and anti-oxidants, may be one of the best at keeping the doctor away. The Golden Delicious apple, named
for its yellow-gold skin and sweet flavor, was declared the official state fruit of West Virginia in 1995. This
excellent all-round apple is especially delicious when it comes ripe from the tree. When cooked, it makes a purée good
for use in baby foods. This apple is said to make the best apple butter! This tart, green Granny Smith apple is one of
the world's most well known varieties. Its pleasingly sour flavor and crisp texture makes this juicy apple good for
cooking or eating fresh. After it is cut, it keeps its color longer than other varieties, making it an especially good
choice for salads. Designed by art director Derry Noyes, Apples features the work of John Burgoyne. The stamp art was
illustrated with pen and ink and watercolor, with some additional detail added on the computer. These stamps are issued
at the postcard rate. Made in the USA.
