Ruby Mac are a great eating apple and for applesauce. They have a tart-sweet flavor and are a beautiful red apple all shined up. You can use them in pies too but is best to mix with another apple since Ruby Mac break down easily when cooked. The "Mac" part of the name means the apple is part Macintosh variety, for those of you who are looking for that kind!
Several customers say they love Ruby Mac for drying so that is something you can try if you like doing experiments.
For those of you who want early-bird Honeycrisp, we have 1 row that is nice and ripe. The redder ones are ready, the green-colored are not yet ripe. The main rows are still too green so wait a few weeks for those.
Gala and Smoothies just opened up on Monday too so there is a nice selection right now.
Bartlett pears are sold out for the year. Here's hoping for a larger amount on the trees next year!
We also also now on Instagram!
