Arkansas Black and King Lusk apples are ready! Arkansas Black are the hardest apples we grow and are great keepers. King Lusk are a great eating apple and should be tried by fans of the Jonagold. We don’t grow many of these varieties, so get them while you can.
It’s time to get your apples and cider for the Halloween and fall parties. When we were kids, Mom always made us caramel apples rolled in nuts using Jonathan apples. Make a great punch by heating some of our fresh apple cider with cinnamon sticks and float thin-sliced apples on top. How many of you remember dunking for apples?
Fuji and Granny Smith apples are ready! Fujis are a sweet, crisp eating apple similar to Galas. Everyone knows the green, tart, crisp Granny Smith apples that are wonderful for cooking and dehydrating. They hold their shape in pies and as fried apples.
Today we are packing the last bin of Muscadine grapes. If you don’t get to the orchard soon, count them as gone.
Don’t wait to come to the orchard or one of the farmers markets to get your fall apples. The varieties come and go quickly.
This is what we currently have available in the orchard salesroom. Varieties available at the farmers markets may vary.
