If you thought I was excited about pomegranates, you won’t believe how excited I am that Honeycrisp apples are in season! They are my favorite apple, if not, my favorite fruit! In my opinion, they just taste like an apple should taste. I got lucky this year and scored ten pounds of these delicious apples for just ten bucks – and they’re the size of softballs! But it got me thinking about all the different kinds of apples out there, so I went in search of a site to educate myself about them, and found this one.
If you click on the Apple Varieties link and scroll down the page, you can find all the apple varieties listed in alphabetical order. To learn more about a variety, just click its name. If the name of the variety has a red dot next to it, there will be a picture of that variety.
Are you looking for an orchard in your area? They provide a listing of orchards in the US and Canada. Just click Orchard Listings on the navigational strip across the top of the page. Then choose the State you’re looking for from the map, or scroll down and click the link for that state. For Canada you have to scroll down and use the links.
I recommend that you go to the Apple Articles section next. Just click Apple Articles and then you should read the What Varieties Do I Want article. It is awesome! The article talks all about the different varieties and gives you a recommendation for what you should try. My favorite made the list, did yours?
This site is an awesome wealth of information on apples whether you want to grow them or just eat them! Check it out today!
