The branded canter is parked close to local fruit vendors selling Stemilt apples and also near several residential complexes for easy access. We intend to reach out to around two million potential customers in these cities."
Indian apple lovers dwelling in small towns and cities are set to get the taste of succulent and juicy Stemilt apples this summer, which has recorded higher production this year.
