Cripps Pink, Braeburn, Gold Rush, Granny Smith and Rome are Ready!

The winter storage apples are finally ready!


Cripps Pink (exact same apple as Pink Lady) is medium size apple with a zingy, crunchy flavor.  The very best for storing long term in my opinion.  Great for eating, baking, applesauce and lots of flavor left when you dry them too.


Braeburn are a firm, crunchy apple.  Mildly sweet/tart.  Great for baking, applesauce and eating.  Also good for storage.  We will be encouraging you to pick the Braeburn in the southeast corner first because they are sweeter than the row at the time.


Gold Rush are a medium-tart apple.  Great for eating, baking and applesauce.  These are also an excellent storage apple.


Granny Smith is our tartest apple.  Most well-known for making an excellent pie and other baking.  Good for storing.


Rome is a beautiful red apple with a mild flavor.  Known for being a great cooking apple for pies and baking.

Other Apples Still Available:  Ruby Jon, Melrose, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Jonathons and Jonagold apples (Jonagold will be gone soon, after the weekend for sure, maybe before).  Liberty, Ruby Mac and Gala apples are done for the season. 

Still to Come:  Fuji.  I'm guessing 10 days at least for these.  Just not very sweet yet.

Tomatoes:    Tomatoes are actually still going strong.  Most of the ones on top look bad but when you look underneath inside the bushes, there are LOTS of nice ones.  I'll keep you posted on how they do after all this rain.  $0.50/lb.

Pumpkins:  Lot of pumpkins available.

See you all at our apple festival this weekend!  Saturday 10am to 2pm.
