It’s apple season! That means it’s time to go to the orchard or the local grocery store and pick some apples for pies and such. Well, now you can learn all about the different apple varieties before you go and buy them!
The varieties that they describe here are: Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Gala, Fuji, Granny Smith, Braeburn, Jonagold, Cripps Pink and Cameo.
You can mouse over each apple to get a brief description of the apples or you can click them for a full description and a listing of what they can be used for. For example, salads, pies, sauce, baking and freezing, as well as, what seasons they will be available in.
