There is a plentiful supply of MacIntosh, Honeycrisp, Cortland, Empire, Gala and Macoun. The best Honeycrisp picking is well down the hill above and below the three Cortland rows – the best Gala and MacIntosh picking is uphill along the fence.
Crimson Crisp (the bright red apples that have been behind the red tape) will start tomorrow Friday Oct 5 – this is one of our favorite apples – very crisp sweet tart flavor – improves over a few weeks after picking – our longest keeping apple – lasts until March in our refrigerator.
We will also start our small crop of Golden Delicious on Friday and a very few Northern Spys .
After Columbus Day weekend we will be closed on Monday, then back open Tuesday for the rest of the week. Our last day will probably be Sunday Oct 14. You can pick drops for apple sauce, cider etc. for $9.00 per 1/2 bushel. Bring your own reusable bags if you want.
