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.
