please don’t squeeze my apples

When I first started to work in the apple business one of the most important lessons I was taught by the Lapacek’s was to be extremely gentle when handling the apples.  If you handle an apple too harshly it will bruise – even if you just squeeze it – a bruise will form.  Maybe not right away, but it won’t take long and it will be there and we all know that a bruised apple is not good.

So, I would be at the farmer’s markets and people would come by, give my apples a squeeze and say “Are these apples bruised?”.  If they weren’t before…they are now… Instead of trying to explain this each time I figured it might be better said on a shirt. 


So…I created my signature shirt ‘please don’t squeeze my apples’.

Recently I’ve had a lot of compliments on my shirt and hoodies so I thought I’d post how you can get your very own.  Head over to my Zazzle shop and you can customize your very own ‘please don’t squeeze my apples’ t-shirt, hoodie, or whatever you want.  Professional Photo's of Lapacek's Orchard

Zazzle’s a great way to share your design without investing too much on actual shirts that you won’t know what size and style will sell.

And of course – the back of your shirt will do a little promoting for our orchard too!

I have to tell you – those folks at the market tend to still squeeze my apples but there companion is usually laughing at my shirt.
