What is available now? Fujis hit by hail.

This is what we have in the Crow Mountain Orchard salesroom right now.

Prices, sizes, and varieties vary from what may be for sale at our booths at the Scottsboro and Guntersville Farmers Markets.

Update:

  • GRANNY SMITH are selling fast. We won’t have them much longer, so get to the orchard soon. You may want to call before you go.
  • FUJI APPLES were hit hard by hail recently, so we have very few that can be sold. We can no longer accept calls to reserve Fujis for customers. We just don’t have enough and don’t want to promise you will get some and not be able to fulfill our commitment.
  • When the PINK LADY APPLES are ready, we expect they will also be in short supply due to the hail. I will post it as soon as we have some to sell.

APPLES

  • FUJI APPLES-a crisp, sweet, eating apple that are a favorite of people who like Gala apples.
  • GRANNY SMITH APPLES-a firm, tart green apple that holds it shape well when cooked. Great for pies and fried apples. These are selling fast, and we are near the end of them.
  • ARKANSAS BLACK APPLES-the hardest apple you will every find! It is a dark red apple with a blackish tinge. They are good for eating and cooking. They keep extremely well in the refrigerator. We only have a few trees of these, so the quantities are very limited, and they won’t last long.
  • ROME BEAUTY APPLES-They are round, red, and glossy, with a thick skin and firm flesh. It is primarily used for baking, as its flavor develops when cooked, and it holds its shape well. The Rome Beauty was first discovered in 1817 planted along the Ohio River near Proctorville, Ohio.
  • WINESAP APPLES–medium size, juicy, moderately tart, red/green color, good for eating and cooking. I would not use these for pies without adding cornstarch or other thickener because of their juiciness.
  • MUTSU APPLES–large, green, crisp eating apples
  • RED AND GOLDEN DELICIOUS APPLES
  • JONATHAN APPLES are ripe and available now! Jonathans were always my Mother’s favorite cooking apple. They hold their shape as well as Granny Smith so are good for making pies and fried apples. They are a little tart, but not as tart as Granny Smiths, so they are also good for eating. Mom always used Jonathans to make a big pot of applesauce. They are a medium size, red apple that is traditionally used for caramel apples. When the Jonathans get ripe, you know fall is coming!

We are closing early today in Guntersville to go back to the orchard to restock to attend a special event at the ALBERTSVILLE Farmers Market at 3:30, today, October 16. We will have Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, and Jonathan apples, Muscadines, and fresh apple cider at Albertsville.

We will open our booth at 6:30 am for those of you who want to come early. We will remain open during the run, but parking will be remote requiring you to walk to the market.

Fuji Apples in Short Supply

I was just warned that there won’t be as many Fujis as we anticipated. There was recently hail damage to about half the crop. It takes twice as long to grade and pack them. It is unlikely there will be any sold at the farmers markets. Please call the orchard before you go for Fujis since they may be temporarily sold out. There will be quite a few sold as second quality at a reduced price.
