Apples apple varieties
Our customers come to our orchard to pick their own apples and have 23 varieties to choose from. . . . starting in late July, the LODI is ready to be picked for great applesauce and pies. Our early August apples include JERSEY MAC, EARLY BLAZE, and DUTCHESS. This season, late August apples will be McINTOSH and GALA. JONATHANS will begin in the middle of September. When October arrives we start picking EMPIRE, GOLDEN DELICIOUS, JONAGOLD and BLUSHING GOLDEN. Late in October we still have RED DELICIOUS, BRAEBURN and WINESAP. The message on our answering machine gives up-to-date picking information. 815-338-7443. It gives our estimated ripening dates and our favorite ways to use our apples.

"Hope we see you!"
