|We still have many 'Enterprise' apples for pick-your-own customers, plus many harvested 'Enterprise' apples for sale now.|
|I've harvested a few mixed boxes of 'Enterprise' (red apples at left) and 'GoldRush' (yellow apples at right) for sale. This box sold shortly after I took this photo, but I picked a couple more boxes this afternoon.|
|'GoldRush' apples have just started ripening. Customers can pick their own 'GoldRush' apples from Oct. 20 to Nov. 12.|
We finished harvesting 'Harrowsweet' European pears 2 weeks ago, and we now have six 20-pound boxes for sale, until we sell out. This pear variety lives up to its name: it's very sweet. We also still have a few boxes of 'Luscious' European pears for sale for the next few days.
Prices for apples and pears are detailed in the Sept. 27 blog post (scroll down).
We're now open our fall hours, from Sept. 1 to Nov. 30: open 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mon.-Sat., and Sundays 1:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. I'm usually out harvesting apples, so I put a sign on the sales building post to ring the bell for service. Ring it loudly, once or twice, and I'll hear it and come to the sales building.
We're expecting a very good crop of pecans this year. Many people have been asking when we'll have cracked pecans for sale. Pecan harvest starts about the same time every year, in early Nov., after we have a hard freeze that advances opening of the shucks. Once pecan harvest starts, the pecans have to be dried, then cleaned and cracked for sale. We hope to have cracked pecans for sale starting about Nov. 14, as stated in the Fruit Harvest Seasons sidebar at left, and we should have them for sale until late June, when we sell out.
