Big Apple of Idaho (Fruitland, Idaho nickname)

Fruitland, Idaho, is a city that was named after its apple orchards, and its nickname is “the Big Apple of Idaho.”

It’s uncertain when Fruitland received this nickname. “Big Apple of Idaho” was added to Fruitland’s Wikipedia page on February 22, 2006.


Wikipedia: Fruitland, Idaho
Fruitland is a city in Payette County, Idaho, United States. It lies along U.S. Route 95 in the Treasure Valley of southwest Idaho, about 50 miles (80 km) west of Boise on the border with Oregon. It is part of the Ontario Micropolitan Area. Fruitland is named after apple orchards that surround the community, and its slogan is “The Big Apple of Idaho.”

Welcome to Fruitland,Idaho
”The Big Apple of Idaho”! No, it’s not a bustling metropolis - it’s Fruitland! A small community of just over 4,000, the original town site was 160 acres mostly planted with apple and prune orchards that give the city its name. Although Fruitland holds proudly to its agricultural heritage it has grown to include a diversity of new business and light industry.
