General Apple Information

(click here for ripening info)

 

  • If you are using the apples for cooking, don't forget to mix varieties to add an interesting flavor to pies, sauces and crisps.  Visit our Ripening Schedule for some great suggestions!
     

  • All apples like to be refrigerated, especially the early season apples (they are more tender and less hardy than the later season apples). 
     

  • Apples need to breathe - store them in containers that allow the passage of air. Keep them cool, but do not allow them to freeze. (36° is optimal) The hydrator, or a plastic bag with holes punched in it in your fridge is good. Some apples, like Golden Delicious and Gala require moisture (wet paper towels or sprinkling) to keep from shriveling.
     

  • Apples naturally give off an ethylene gas, which stimulates the ripening process.  To keep your apples firm and fresh, we don't recommend storing them with other fruits or veggies.
     

  • From year to year, we have more or less apples depending on the weather.  Some years your favorites may be prettier, larger, smaller or in different quantities than other years.
     

  • The picking times are approximate and very dependent on the weather.  Feel free to call anytime or check the website to find out exactly what apples are available.
