Fruitland
Pop. 3,805

Once known as Zeller’s Crossing (for A. Zeller, who plotted the town in 1908), Fruitland is renowned for its apple and prune orchards. During peak production from 1916-1930, six packing sheds and an evaporator were needed to keep up with the abundant supply of fruit. Dirt-covered cellars were built to store the apples until they could be packed in winter months. Today, temperature-controlled storage warehouses contain thousands of bins of fruit as well as frozen products from the area’s orchards. The agricultural community is often jokingly referred to as “The Big Apple of Idaho.”
