Red and Gold Delicious and Jonagold apples are customer favorites. This is the very best time to buy them. They are wonderful eating apples. Gold Delicious and Jonagold can be used for cooking. Several customers who do not cook with sugar use the Gold Delicious for cooking since they are naturally sweet.
If you have not tried the Jonagold, I recommend it to anyone who loves the Honeycrisp apples. They are crisp and have a similar sweet/tart flavor.
We hope to have fresh cider in one to two weeks.

- Jonathan Apples
- Pippin Apples
- McIntosh Apples (currently limited while we wait for more to ripen)
- Asian Pears

If you dehydrate fruit, make sure you try drying the Spartlett pears. Dried pears have a more intense pear taste and sweetness that makes them great for a healthy snack. My favorite use for them is to add them to oatmeal which naturally sweetens it.
