We will open Honeycrisp, Cortland, Macoun and Fuji for picking on Friday Sept 15. There are plenty of good McIntosh and Gala as well. The photo shows nice looking Honeycrisp on trees we planted in 2014 – they are off to a good start.
Honeycrisp unlike most apples ripens in stages, so pickers need to choose the reddest apples and leave the others to ripen next week or the week after. In commercial orchards the Honeycrisp trees are picked three times .
The crop this year (including Honeycrisp) is a good one and we need your help to get it picked. There will be cider and donuts on Saturday & Sunday – donuts run out, so come early.
