U-Pick Varieties

Sorted by Harvest Date

Gala

Sweet and spicy. Great for eating and baking. Extremely firm flesh, very crispy, juicy, and sweet, which is why it's one of the most popular apples in the country for fresh eating. Somewhat bland when cooked, but the typical first response on biting into one is: “Best apple I ever had in my life.” It can be dried with good results. A favorite summer apple.

Jonalicious

Very crisp, sweet, tart and juicy. Good for salads and pies. The Jonalicious is a combination of Jonathan and Red Delicious Apples. The perfect combination of sugar and spice taste of Red Delicious and the tart freshness of Jonathan. Keeps well and is excellent fresh or cooked.

Jonathan

Firm, crisp and tart. Excellent all-purpose apple. One of the finest mid-season varieties for eating out of hand, and excellent for cider. Jonathan's influence has been spread by a number of well-known crosses, most of them identifiable as family members because the names share the first four letters. It has a spicy tang making it ideal in sauce and pies, a taste also noted in its descendents. This variety rates high for both eating fresh and cooking down into sauce, but it will not keep its shape when baked.

Blushing Golden

Rich, spicy and snappy with smooth skin. Blushing Golden is an improvement of Golden Delicious: firm, tangy and delicious. It has a full, rich flavor that actually improves after time in storage. Firm and tangy, it is able to last through the winter when kept chilled.

Empire

Empire is a mid-season favorite of some. It is cross of McIntosh and Red Delicious, and has a unique taste. Its flesh is creamy white, juicy, crisp and is excellent for snacks, deserts or salads. It has a high dessert quality and is also good for cider. It is good for sauce, baking, pies and freezing.

Melrose

Flavorful all-purpose, firm, crisp and sweet. Melrose is Ohio’s official state apple. A cross between Jonathan and Red Delicious. It's the product of Ohio's apple breeding program during the first half of the 20th century. With rich flavor and coarse, juicy flesh, Melrose is a good fresh-eating apple that’s best when it’s been stored for a while. It also cooks well, holding its shape. It has a fine sugary sweetness that's perfectly balanced by a touch of tart acidity. It will keep perfectly under refrigeration for around four months.

Golden Delicious

Crisp, mild and sweet. One of the most popular apples ever grown, and the parent of numerous crosses. Has a rich mellow flavor and a skin so tender and thin that it doesn't require peeling for most recipes. Its firm, white flesh retains its shape and flavor when baked or cooked, making it the preferred "all purpose" cooking apple. These apples are wonderful for salads and fresh eating. They also are considered the best apple choice for cider. Originates from West Virginia where it is also the state apple.

In 1914, Stark Bro's Nursery, the nation’s oldest and largest commercial grower of fruit trees, paid a much publicized $5,000 for the parent tree, and then built a two-story, woven wire cage complete with burglar alarm to deter any would-be propagators.

Ida Red

Sweetly tart, juicy and spicy. Great baked whole. A Wagoner and Jonathan cross. Excellent for sauce, cooking, baking and pies, and good for eating, salads and freezing. Makes a beautiful pink applesauce. Cook the apples with the skins on and strain the sauce to get the best pink color. One of the best pie apples there is.

Mutsu

Mellow spiciness, very crisp with a sweet honey flavor. Mutsu's become quite large and have a yellow-golden skin. The flesh has a creamy-white color that is very juicy, with a sweet flavor. A very popular eating apple. It cooks superbly. “Oven Busters” - take a big one home, bake it and you have a feast for two. You don't need many for a deep apple pie.

Winesap

Crisply tart with juicy, winey flavor. One of the best apples for baking and cider. Winesap apples keep their lively flavor when baked and can be used to make thick juicy sauces.

Braeburn

Rich and complex with a unique combination of sweet and tart in flavor. Stores well when chilled. Braeburn is a sweet winter apple. Available around the first of November, this apple is a crisp option for the holidays. High impact flavor. The crisp, aromatic Braeburn blends sweetness and tartness just right for snacks and salads. It bakes well and makes an excellent sauce that requires little or no sugar.
