LARGO - The annual 4-H apple and pecan sale sponsored by the Pinellas County 4-H Association is now in full swing. This sale is the main fundraiser for the 4-H Association.
Each year, the Pinellas County 4-H Association awards $6,000 in grants for 4-H camps and trips, 4-H Legislature, 4-H Congress and, most recently, college scholarships.
This year, the sale is featuring Yellow Delicious and Empire apples, which are excellent for baking, cooking or just eating. The apples are priced $44 for a 40-pound bushel, or $24 for a half-bushel.
Pecans, halves or pieces, are available in one-pound bags. Specialty chocolate-covered pecans, chocolate-cluster pecans and cinnamon-glaze pecans are offered in 12-ounce decorative bags. All bags are $11 each.
Any 4-H member can take your prepaid order, or orders can be placed through the 4-H Association website at pc4hassociation.org. Orders must be placed by Monday, Oct. 1. Pick up will be Oct. 25 to 28 at the Chester Ochs 4-H Educational Center, 14644 113th Ave., N. in Largo.
