Apple varieties currently in the farmstand

We have the following apple varieties in good supply as of 10/8/11 available at the farm stand. Here are some descriptions to help you choose!

Gala: small to medium. Extremely crisp/crunchy sweet and flavorful. Great eating. Excellent storage for 3 months with refrigeration.

Macoun: A crisper, crunchier, more aromatic, less tart McIntosh type. Great eating.

Liberty: Crisp and juicy. A bit tart – similar to Macoun. Very good eating.  Good baking and sauce.

Empire: Firmer, slighty sweeter McIntosh type.  Great eating. Very good baking and sauce. Stores very well for 3-4 months in fridge.

Spencer: A McIntosh and Golden Delicious cross. Crisp and juicy. Medium to large sized. Nicely sweet-tart. Excellent eating, very good baking and sauce. Stores 3-4 months. (Gordie’s favorite)

Jonagold: A Golden Delicious and Jonathan cross, but better than either.  Crisp, juicy, sweet-tart, loaded with flavor. Large sized.  Stores 3-4 months. Great eating and cooking.

Senshu: Sweet, crisp and flavorful.  Same parentage as Fujii but an earlier apple.  Excellent eating.  Stores for 3-4 months. Don’t be put off by its appearance.

Sister of Fortune: (aka NY428) Cross of Empire and Spy.  Firm with McIntosh flavor.  Excellent eating.  Super flavorful cooking.  (Andrea’s favorite)

We have more varieties available, but not a constant supply so they are not  listed here.  Come visit us!

  1. Love your Sister of Fortunes. Crisp, wonderful flavor and stand up to cooking. Made the best apple crisp ever with them.
