Honeycrisp apples: We just picked our first Honeycrisp apples of the season that so many of you have been waiting for. They are available in the market by the pound ($1.50) or in a 10-pound peck ($12.00) bag. Come on out for some, you will find they were worth waiting for!
Picked or U-Pick apples in the market: We now have Mollie’s Delicious, Gala, Jon-a-Mac and McIntosh apples for sale in the market. You may also pick these four kinds.
- Mollie’s Delicious is a large, sweet eating apple. It is a late summer apple and this will probably be the last weekend for them.
- Gala is a great eating and cooking apple. It has a crisp snappy bite over a mellow sweetness.
- Jon-A-Mac: This is a good cooking or eating apple. It has all of the best qualities of a Jonathan apple and a McIntosh.
- McIntosh: This is the “real” old fashioned McIntosh. It has a white flesh, is very juicy, slightly tart and smells wonderful. Great for applesauce or making apple juice.
Fall apples: The remainder of the fall apples are not ready yet. We will open for those to pick probably mid to late September. This past week’s cool weather has slowed things down. We have lots of apples this year, so there will be plenty when we open for picking. The fall apples that will be available to pick are:
- Ida Red
- Red Delicious
- Red Rome
- Northern Spys
- Golden Delicious
Grape Update: When you come out, that wonderful aroma you smell is the white Niagara grapes! We are awaiting the results of a sugar sample (hope to know by 9-13) to determine the opening date. For your planning purposes, we think the white Niagara grapes will be ready around 9-14 and the Concords possibly the week of 9-18 or later. They will be 25 cents/pound to pick, if you pick over 100 pounds, they will be 20 cents a pound.
Fruit: Our seeded watermelon have decided to get ready now that summer picnic season is over, so we have a lot and will have them on special this weekend. We will have peaches this weekend as well.
Winter Squash: We have acorn, butternut and sweet dumpling squash ready now.
Brandy House: The Brandy house will be open for tasting and tours on Saturday, from 1 – 4. Bruce would love to see you.
Thanks again for buying local, we hope to see you soon.
Beth and everyone at Corey Lake Orchards
