Winesap/Stayman

Super hard apple that is very tart. Most people prefer to bake with this apple rather than eat it. Available mid-October till the end of the season.

Cameo

Hard apple with thin skin. Sweet/tart flavor, and makes a great fresh-eating apple. You may even notice a hint of pear. Available mid-September through mid-October.

Arkansas black apple

Arkansas Black

Very hard and tart. With striking ebony-red skin and dense ivory flesh, a firm apple with smooth skin that has a naturally waxy feel. Great for baking. They are thought to be a descendant of the Winesap apple. It's hard to find an apple that has more flavor. Available mid-October.

Empire apple

Empire

Hard apple with a sweet but tart crunchy flavor. Depending on the year, the apple can be sweeter than tart. Good for baking and eating. We use them in all our pies. Available mid-September through mid-October.

Macintosh apple

Macintosh

Semi-hard apple with a sweet-tart crunchy flavor. Old fashion favorite. Good for baking & eating. Available from opening day through the end of September.

Honey Crisp Apple

Honey Crisp

Hard crunchy and super juicy apple that holds up well for months. The snappy texture, coupled with its complex, sweet-tart, and mildly aromatic flavors, make the Honeycrisp apple an excellent choice to enjoy eaten out-of-hand or in salads. Best for eating only. Available from opening day through mid-October.

Cortland apples

Cortlands

Semi-hard apple with a sweet-tart flavor. This was Grandma Ann’s favorite apple for making pies. Good for eating and baking. Available mid-September through mid-October.

Gala Apples

Gala

Hard apple with flesh that is dense, crisp, and creamy yellow with a mild sweet flavor. Galas tend to be taller than they are wide. Good for eating. Available mid-September through mid-October.

Macoun Apples

Macoun

Semi-hard apple that is a cross between the McIntosh and Jersey Black cultivars. The Jersey Black, also a dessert apple, lends its very dark, almost black skin, to the Macoun giving it a purplish tint. It has a complex sweet-tart flavor. No longer available in supermarkets. They are the best eating apples available. They do not hold up well. So they should be eaten by the end of December. Great for baking and eating. Available beginning of Apple picking season through mid-October.

Jona Gold Apples

Jona Gold

Semi-hard apple. This apple tends to be large in size and is tangy-sweet with honey-like flavor notes. On the outside, Jonagold is crimson red flushed with yellow-green undertones. The flesh is a creamy pale yellow color. Good for eating and baking. Available end of September through Mid October.

Red Delicious apple

Red Delicious

Hard sweet apple. It has a sweet but very mild flavor, somewhat reminiscent of slightly over-ripe melon. Good for eating only. Available end of September through the end of October.

Granny Smith apples

Granny Smith

Very hard and Very tart green apple. Great for baking. Available October.

Rome Apples

Romes

Hard and crunchy apple. It is primarily used for baking, as its flavor develops when cooked, and it holds its shape well. Available all of October.

Very hard and crisp apple. Very tart. Great for baking but so love to eat it as well. Available October.
