Apple Season After Honeycrisp

Yes, the rumor’s are true.  Our Honeycrisp have all sold out for the season.  Combined with the early ripening date, the fewer bushels of apples from our trees and their huge popularity, honeycrisp had a short lived season this year.

If the honeycrisp are all gone why on earth would you still visit the orchard!?  Well, we do happen to group 42 other varieties  of delicious apples too!  I wanted to tell you about a few that you should try out if you are a Honecrisp lover…

250px-Malus-JonagoldJonagold – this is the apple that most Honeycrisp eaters go to after the Honeycrisp season is done.  

Firm, crackling, juicy, slightly tart, flesh. Superb, rich, full flavor. Finest dessert and eating quality. Good cooking properties. Will store in common refrigerator for 3 months. Jonathan x Golden Delicious cross.

250px-Cameo_apple Cameo a sweeter alternative than the Jonagold.  This apple is slow to brown after being cut which is fantastic for school lunches!

Firm and crisp with a highly appealing subacid, aromatic flavor. Creamy white flesh doesn't brown when cut. Possibly Red Delicious x Golden Delicious found growing in Washington state.Apple Fireside

Firesideanother sweeter alternative – if one of your favorite things about the Honeycrisp was there size – this is a great apple for you!

Very large fruit with sweet, pleasant flavor and fine-grained flesh good for fresh eating, salad, and baked apples. Good storage life. McIntosh x Longfield cross released by the University of Minnesota in 1943.

These are just three examples of some fantastic apples we have available still in our shop.  Feel free to ask for a sample (or two, or three) the next time your in.  We want you to go home happy!
