Enterprise

Enterprise is impressive to look at – large and attractive. The skin looks like a ruby red cosmos filled with yellow stars. Inside, Enterprise boasts crisp, cream flesh with a satisfying balance of flavor, sugar and tanginess. Some really like to eat this apple out of hand, and folks rave about Enterprise for its baking qualities. When cooked, slices hold their shape and their fine flavor too. Easy to peel, and large enough that you need only a few to make a pie. Enterprise is one of our best for storage, keeping well through the winter so you can impress your guests with the best of the fall harvest long after lesser apples have gone soft. Great for making apple rings too.

BEST USES
Fresh eating, baking, drying, long storage

SEASON
Late September – late October. Available as U-Pick and in the farm store.

Chestnut

Small, but worth your attention.  We think Chestnut’s eating quality makes other, even premium apples look rather sad and second rate. Very fine-grained, juicy, crisp, cream-colored flesh with extraordinarily rich yet mellowed flavor. We think it is the most impressive and satisfying dessert apple, when it is available. Please be patient with us as we establish a large Chestnut planting with the aim of having plenty of it available in years to come.

BEST USES
Fresh eating, sauce, long storing (with care)

SEASON
Mid-September. Available in the farm store and U-Pick, in season. Very limited availability as we increase our Chestnut plantings.
