|We now have many harvested 'Jonafree' apples (left), 'Luscious' European pears (center), and some of my apple crosses (right) for sale.|
I've almost finished harvesting the 'Jonafree' apples, and have about 200 pounds of them in our cooler. 'Jonafree' is tart-sweet with a flavor similar to 'Jonathan', but earlier and immune to apple scab disease. 'Gala' is now sold out, but I'm starting to harvest other apple varieties and my crosses. I give taste samples of all of these.
The main apple harvest season, and pick-your-own apple season, will start in late Sept. when many 'Enterprise' apples are ripe, and go until mid-late Nov. We do have one 'Enterprise' tree which has apples that are ripening now, so if readers of this blog want to come pick your own apples this Thurs. Sept. 11 to Sat. Sept. 13, phone 620-597-2450 and leave a message letting me know when you're coming. Scroll down 2 posts for pick-your-own apple prices.

We're now open our fall hours: Mondays to Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and 1 to 6 p.m. on Sundays, until Nov. 30. I appreciate phone messages letting me know when you're coming. If you drop by and I don't see you come in, since I'm out harvesting apples or Asian pears, ring the bell on the sales building.
|I can't always see or hear the driveway when I'm out harvesting Asian pears (photo) or apples, so phone ahead and leave a message letting me know when you're coming, or ring the bell on the sales building.|
