'GoldRush' apples & apple crosses ripening
We started harvesting 'GoldRush' apples a couple days ago, and now have some harvested ones for sale and some for pick-your-own. 'GoldRush' was named for the rush of flavor you get when you bite into it, and it's the favorite apple of many customers. 'GoldRush' keeps for 7 months in the fridge -- I eat one fresh with my lunch every day until strawberries start in early May -- and the flavor gets even better after a few weeks in the fridge, as starches convert into sugars.
Many 'Enterprise' apples are also still ripening, and we have lots of these harvested for sale and for pick-your-own. 'Enterprise' is also excellent for fresh eating, baking and cooking, and keeps 6 months in the fridge.
