Apple Update: Week of Nov 1st...Pink Lady Ready!

Granny Smith


We are expecting to be open through the 2nd or 3rd week of Nov.
Normally we are about done this time of year but the winter apples became ripe later this year. Just keep coming until you read the post that we are closed! :)

Things in the orchard are pretty much the same as last week.

Three changes:

Pink Lady are FINALLY ready :) We always wait impatiently for them since they are the last apple of the season to be ready.

Jonagold and Fuji are pretty much done. There are some out there if you want to hunt but they are getting pretty rough looking. It's a shame though because the Jonagold are so darn good :)

The Melrose are all gone too if I didn't already say that last week. One thing I learned recently about Melrose is they are a cross between Red Delicious and Jonathon apples. Who knew!? It's seems like a funny combo because people seem to LOVE Jonathon apples....but then Red Delicious have a bit of a bad rap because they are usually grainy and yucky at the grocery stores. Just thought it was a bit of a strange combo but really it worked out well, because I really like Melrose.
