They finally passed our taste test for being sweet enough! They are ready to pick now!
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.
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.
