After zero apples last year, it's been the year of all years for our orchard--great bloom, pollination, and the trees are just loaded. Biggest problem is the limbs are straining to the breaking point! Every variety is a bumper crop.

The apple lineup in order of first to last in the season.
Late July-Early August. Yellow, very juicy. Absolute best pie apple out there. Juicy!
Early August right after Pristines. Red tip bearer. Amazingly sweet for an early apple.
Big loads of red apples. Similar to Summer Rambo. Mid- August. Somewhat tart complex flavor.
Our main season apple for decades. Purplish color with crisp white sweet/tart flesh. End of August-September. Similar to a McIntosh. Tastes like an apple should!
Red as the name suggests! Sweet subacid goodness comes in late early September
Mid-September-October. Tip bearing takeoff on Jonathan. Sweet and deep red with yellowish flesh. Some think these make the best applesauce--with reddish tinge. Bears tremendous loads.
Last apple to mature—mid to late November. Incredible, complex flavor. Highest brix (sugar) yet brings so much flavor along with it! Our favorite. Will store until spring.
