Crop Report

September 9, 2017

Hey Everyone, several new apple varieties picked this week; Cortland, McIntosh, Jonathan. We are starting to bring in lots of pumpkins from the field. Our front porch is full of autumn colors!

As we move into fall we are sad to announce that our peach season is over. We hope you enjoyed the peaches this year as much as we did. Fingers crossed for another great season next year!

 

Here's a little info about the new apple varieties this week: 

 

Cortland is a cross between Ben Davis and McIntosh. They are crisp, juicy and sweetly tart. Cortland is a good all-purpose apple but is best in salads because its white flesh resists browning. 

 

McIntosh was discovered by John McIntosh in Ontario, Canada, in 1830. Today they are the third-largest apple crop in the United States. Macs are  sweet, crisp, and juicy. They are excellent for eating and are also a good sauce apple. 

 

Jonathan is the fifth-largest apple crop in the United States. They are firm, crisp, juicy, and tart, with a spicy aftertaste. Jonathan is a great all-purpose apple. They are great for pies because they hold their shape well. 

 

A note for pie makers: we recommend getting a mix of apple varieties when baking pies. Don't hesitate to ask us what mix we recommend (as we pick new varieties our mix will change). 

 

Stop by and see us this weekend!
