Pick Your Own First of the Season Apples at Parlee Farms!
While apple picking season may finally be here, not all of our more than 20 varieties are ready for picking just yet since each variety is at its peak at different times throughout September and October. Varieties can be categorized as “first of the season/early season”, “mid-season”, and “late season”.
The first of the season apples that are currently available or will be available very soon are:
The Ginger Gold apple is the highest quality early season yellow dessert apple available and is great for baking in pies and apple crisp. It is a firm, yellow apple that has a sweet, mildly tart flavor. It’s also excellent for fresh cut apple use since it is very slow to turn brown. This apple isn’t in all of the supermarkets and is relatively unknown yet delicious!
The Jonamac apple is a high quality MacIntosh-type eating apple that ripens a week ahead of the standard MacIntosh apple. It’s also great for sauce.
If you are interested in a specific apple, be sure to check our Current Picking Conditions page to find out if that variety is available at: http://parleefarms.com/current.html. It is updated on a daily basis!
