GALA and HONEYCRISP are now ready!

The Gala and Honeycrisp are both ready!! 

Pick the apples that have more red on them, and you'll be picking the riper ones. 

We have a row of Honeycrisp that are especially beautiful.  Ask specifically for them, but they won't last long.  The row is in a different place than the main two rows.  We will have a large white sign directing you to them or just ask.

The Jonagolds will probably be ready in a week or two.  We will post when they are ready.

Gala Apples ready at this time. . . .

Gala Apples are ready now, but just barely ripe.
You may need to keep them for a week in your garage to ripen them up the last bit. .

\Remember, all crops are 2 - 3 weeks late in the Willamette Valley this year.
With our cool spring, we just do not have the heat units to ripen the crops as fast as a normal year.
" heat units" that is how farmers measure timelines for crops now days.
We can predict when insects emerge, and when to fertilize, etc.

Also we do not at this time have a VISA machine this year.  Please come prepared with cash or check instead.  Thanks!!
