Jonagold, Melrose and Liberty Apples are now ready!

Three new varieties are ready to pick!

Jonagold apples are huge this year.  One of the best all-around apples!  Great for eating, baking and applesauce.  Very juicy.  One of my favorites.  Definitely will be easy to process the apples this year because of their size!

 

Melrose apples

Melrose apples

Melrose are a great baking apple.  They keep their shape and flavor after baking.  It is a great apple for baking whole.  They are a nice eating apple too, especially if you let it sit for a bit after being picked.  Melrose are a cross between a Red Delicious and Jonathon apple. 

 

Liberty apples

Liberty apples

Liberty apples are smaller size but with lots of flavor.  A very crispy apple that is tart sweet with a zing.  Liberty are amazing to grow because they are apple scab immune and resistant to mildew, cedar apple rust and fire blight.  That is pretty amazing for an apple!  I heard they are really good for drying, plus eating, pies and applesauce and apple butter.   Let me know if you do!  FYI, we have one row of these but they are planted every other tree with Honeycrisp.  They won't last long!

 

Other varieties update:

Honeycrisp:  You will have no problem finding them out there.  Greener color left with a little red striping but still you'll find plenty that are a decent size and they still have good flavor.  If you want some redder ones, just keep walking until you get over halfway.

Gala:  Beautiful red/yellow color.  Tons out there still.

Ruby Jon:  Giant amount left.  Beautiful.

Ruby Mac:  More than 1/2 of the row left.  These are still so beautiful too.

Smoothies:  Maybe 5 buckets left.

Apple Orchard Opening Monday, August 15th with Gala, Honeycrisp, Ruby Mac and Smoothies.

Updated Friday, August 19th!  ALL rows of Honeycrisp are now open.  A huge amount of Honeycrisp still available out there! 

Also lots and lots of Gala, Smoothie, and Ruby Mac available, so a nice selection for you!

Bartlett Pears are all done for the year.

The wait is over!  It is apple season!

Gala, Honeycrisp, Ruby Mac and Smoothies!

Bartlett pears in limited quantities are available too.  Pre-picked only.  Offered in 2 gallon bucket size (11.5#) for $7.00.

Honeycrisp:  Everyone's favorite to eat!  Sweet.  Large and beautiful this year.  Can use for applesauce and baking too.  Steal of a deal compared to the grocery stores!

Gala:  Great for eating.  Sweet.  Small to medium size.  Great for taking in lunches.  Great for cooking/baking and applesauce.

Ruby Mac:  Tart/sweet, crunch.  Beautiful red apple.  Part Macintosh for those of you who are use to those!  Good for baking and applesauce too. 

Smoothies:  An early variety of Golden Delicious.  Super crunchy.  Some like Golden Delicious for pies because they keep their shape pretty well.  For applesauce, I like to mix them with other apples.

See you soon!
