Early Gold Apples and Nectarines!

Early Gold Apples

Crow Mountain Orchard salesroom has just started getting in some Early Gold apples and a few nectarines.

Early Gold are always the first apples to get ripe in the season. They are a summer green apple, crisp and a bit tart. They can be used to cook with, but only take about half the time to cook as later apples. They always remind me of the big green apple tree that was in my grandparents’ yard in West Virginia when I was a kid. We have them in the salesroom in the following sizes:

  • 1/2 peck      $6
  • 1 peck          $9
  • 1/2 bushel  $16

Nectarines are very limited right now. We have them in the salesroom for $7.50 for a 2 quart box.

We have plenty of peaches right now–Red Haven semi-cling yellow peaches and white freestone peaches. In the salesroom we have them in the following sizes:

  • 1 qt box        $4
  • 2 qt box       $7
  • 1/2 peck      $9
  • 1 peck          $13
  • 1/2 bushel $25

Sizes, varieties, and prices may vary at the farmers markets. For availability, please call the orchard salesroom between 8:00 and 5:00, 7 days a week, at 256-437-9254.

  1. Any blueberries??????

  2. you do still have the white peaches like I have bought at Guntersville farmers market and honeycrisp apples?

    • We are just starting to get the white peaches in small quantities. We will have the main crop starting in a week or so. The Honeycrisp apples get ripe towards the end of August. We don’t have many Honeycrisp trees, and they are usually gone within a week or two.
