Jonathan Apples Now Available

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!

Large Group Orchard Visits

If you have a large group such as a church group, senior center, service club, etc. who would like to schedule a trip to Crow Mountain Orchard, call the salesroom, 256-437-9254, and schedule a date and time with Michelle or Barb. They schedule groups for Monday through Thursday. Scheduled groups will be provided with numbered tickets for door prize drawings. We encourage groups to reserve a spot on the calendar to avoid having two or more large groups showing up at the same time.
