Galas and Pippins

The apples are getting ripe. Right now we have the following fruit in the orchard salesroom.

  • Honey Crisp apples–We typically sell out of Honey Crisp within a week or two, so don’t wait to get yours. They are a crisp, sweet-tart, tasty eating apple. A favorite of many people. These apples are difficult to grow and handle, but are worth the trouble.
  • Pippin apples–Pippins are the largest apples we grow. They are green and somewhat tart primarily used for cooking. They aren’t pretty, but make great applesauce and apple butter.

Muscadine Grapes–bronze and dark purple

Bronze Muscadine

Muscadine Grapes are native to the Southeastern United States. Because of their thick and strong skin, they are well adapted to hot and humid climates where other types of grapes don’t prosper. Muscadines are a local favorite for making wine, jam, and jellies. These grapes are noted for their high nutritional value.

Fresh Apple Cider

We make cider fresh several times a week from apples we grow here using my Dad’s secret blend of apples. No sugar or flavors added. Many customers buy extra jugs of cider to freeze. Just poor off some out of each jug to allow for freezing expansion. For parties and holidays, serve it warm in a punch bowl with cinnamon sticks and thinly-sliced apples floating on top. People will be convinced it is a special punch recipe.

  • Jonathan–a medium size red apple great for eating, making caramel apples, and cooking. Jonathans are my favorite for fried apples and pies because they hold their shape so well. My mother never used anything other than Jonathans for her wonderful applesauce.
  • McIntosh Apples–a white-fleshed eating and cooking apple. Great in apple cake.
  • Mutsu Apples–large, crisp eating apple yellow green like a Golden Delicious.
