 Braeburn apples

Braeburn apples

Braeburn are a great all-around apple with a sweet, firm crunch.   You can use it for pretty much anything...baking, applesauce, eating, etc.  Pretty good keeper too.

We have a full row of these, plus many trees in the corner section of the older area.

 

Other Apple Variety Availability:

Granny Smith:  Lots available.

Rome: Lots available.

Fuji: Tons and tons.  Lots of loaded trees out there.

Golden Delicious:  Lots and lots.  Just ask and we can make sure you can find them, because most are the in the front, older section of the orchard.  Such a sweet, crunchy eating quality right now. 

Red Delicious:  Many trees available in the front, older section of the orchard.  Ask and we can guide you to them.

Jonagold:  Getting pretty sparse.  You can still find some here and there at the far ends of the rows.

Melrose:  Done.

 

And the Scavenger Hunt Winner is........

Mary W and family!  Congrats you have won a free bucket of apples for your participation in our scavenger hunt.  Great job!

 

Thank you to all who attended our Apple Festival!  You guys made it fun!  It was a great time despite a little bit of windy/rainy weather later in the day. 

For our applesauce tasting, many people were surprised how much they liked the Golden Delicious!  That was a fun fact to learn.  Golden Delicious straight from the tree are definitely a different ballgame then from the store.  Melrose, Ruby Jon and Pink Lady were also among the favorites.

 

On another note, we pre-picked some buckets of many different varieties of apples.  If you are interested in them, they are $12 per bucket.  We will have them available for the next few days. 

 Golden Delicious, Fuji, Rome, Pink Lady, Granny Smith, Braeburn available.
