Apples are still ahead of schedule

As the picking season grows closer, the apples are still way ahead of schedule. The apples on our summer apple tree were ripe about 2 weeks ahead of schedule, and our neighbor Alan Suprenant has some varieties that are 3 weeks ahead! So, we will likely be opening two weeks earlier than we did last year. That would mean opening early to mid-September, with the season peaking around the beginning of October rather than toward the end.

We have a lot more varieties fruiting this year, including Cortlands, Golden Delicious, and MacIntosh, so there will be plenty of apples to choose from. Every tree looks like a wall of fruit, it is truly an amazing fruit year this year. So despite the hail damage there should be plenty of apples for everyone.
