Large, red-striped fruit with an excellent sweet, pleasant flavor and good storage life. This is a classic apple variety that has stood the test of time. Possibly the most planted apple in Minnesota.
(Ripens in late September)
Flavor is sweet but well-balanced. Excellent storage life, up to 7 months. Has become an outstanding commercial and home orchard variety because of its explosive crispness, flavor and storage life. A recent favorite; this one will likely sell out fast!!!
(Ripens in late Sept/early Oct. - approx 2 weeks after Honeycrisp)
A University of Minnesota's developed cold hardy apple variety. A cross between 'Sharon' and 'Connell Red', SnowSweet® has a deliciously sweet, slightly tart taste. Slow to oxidize when exposed to air. 'Honeycrisp' is a good pollinator. Above average resistance to scab and fireblight.
Medium-sized red striped apple with crisp, juicy texture. Excellent sweet, unusual flavor - like cherry candy. Outstanding dessert apple. Fire blight resistant. Good success in zone 3b. Our all time favorite apple!!!
(Ripens in late August)
Introduced by the University of MN in 1998 as one of the, "first of the early apples that is crisp and juicy!" Best known for its excellent sweet tart flavor. Has a much longer storage life than other early apples. Excellent for fresh eating and cooking. Because of its crispness and storage, we prefer this one to other popular early apples.
(Ripens late August)
Perfect kid-sized, known as the “lunchbox,” apple. Excellent for fresh eating & sauce.
(Ripens late Aug)
Pleasant nut-like flavor. Hardy, large crabapple (2" dia). Outstanding flavor and good texture for fresh eating. Medium storage life.
(Ripens late August).
Often sold as an ornamental, this Crab blooms profusely with pink buds turning to white blooms. The crimson fruit makes wonderful jelly & adds a pink blush with tangy flavor to applesauce.
