If you didn't make it out to the orchard for opening weekend, there is still plenty of time to visit this season, and more varieties available every week. Here's a look at what will be ready this weekend:
Gala: A fall favourite, there are 4 rows ready this weekend, with more Gala ready in the coming weeks.
McIntosh: Ontario's apple! Perfect for snacking, sauce, or mixed in pie, this red blush variety is at its peak. If you're a Mac person, this is a great weekend to pick.
Silken: A smaller, sweet and yellow apple. These are perfect for school lunches and make a great addition to a batch of sauce.
Ginger Gold: A surprise favourite among first-time visitors. These sweet, juicy apples now have a slight pink blush. Great for eating fresh, these beauties won't last much longer.
Wealthy: If you can't wait to start baking, Wealthy is now full of sweet, apple flavour and just a hint of tartness which mellows in the oven. These will soon be picked clean!
Early Gold: We have half bushel (~20lbs) bags of Early Gold, selling for $15 each! Perfect for a big batch of apples sauce, no additional sugar needed.
Honeycrisp: The star of the apple season. Our Honeycrisp are getting redder by the day but still need a bit more time to develop delicious sugars. Picking September 17.
