Apple Variety Information


Things to You Should Know About the Dates Below

  • These dates are just estimates based off our historical data as to when each variety will be at peak ripeness.  

  • The weather can make apples ripen earlier or later.

  • All apples bloom within a week or so of each other, but the time to reach full maturity can be a couple months different between some varieties.

  • Not every apple on a tree is ready at once. It could take over a month from when the 1st apple is ripe and ready to pick and the last apple is ready on a single tree.

  • When apples become really ripe they will fall off the tree on their own, so that is why you will find no Honey Crisps still on our trees in October.

  • If there is a particular type of apple you would like to pick yourself please use the dates suggested, sign up for our email updates, and call before you come.
