We will be picking some Paula Reds today to satisfy those of you wanting a good McIntosh flavor apple. Paula Reds have a good flavor and good crunch. They are also one of the best keeping early apples. That means they hold their crunch for several weeks when kept refrigerated. Paula Reds also make a good pie- they hold their shape when cooked a little better than later McIntosh.
We still have a good selection of Vegetables: Corn, Broccoli, String Beans, Carrots, Beets, Lettuce, Cauliflower, Cabbage, New Red Potatoes, and More.
We have started picking our early apples and the apple barn is open for business.
Opening Sunday 8/24/14 at 9:00 am with Jersey Macs, Yellow Transparent, a few Red Astrachan and High Top Sweets.
Jersey Macs are a nice sweet early apple that is low acid and a good flavor. Despite what you may guess from the name: they are NOT a McIntosh, and they are NOT from New Jersey.
Paula Reds will we ready later this week for those folks that are looking for a “Hard Green McIntosh” kind of flavor.
In the Vegetable Department we have Sweet Corn, Broccoli, Beets, and assorted greens available now, as well as a SALE on String Beans. Green, Yellow, and Purple string beans are one sale for $5 for 5 pounds, and one dollar a pound for any quantities over 5 pounds. That is Half Price – stock up and freeze or can for the winter.
