Greetings to all…..a very busy time = short newsletter!
This week at the markets is for SWEET lovers….everything is sweet, tarts will need to wait a week until the Jonathans start….with some exceptions…sweet/tart is on the menu.
Here is what will be at the markets:
Sansa - the Akane/Gala cross that is more sweet than tart, some of the red color of the Akane with some of the sweet flesh of the Gala….always a favorite, also a Japanese variety.
Honeycrisp - no further explanation needed….sweet/tart and crisp.
September Wonder - another variety that falls into the sweet/tart category, though more sweet than tart, lineage goes back to Fuji. Not a particularly pretty apple, but big on taste.
Red Prince - a whopper of an apple, very large, red, sweet and particularly juicy….very juicy, did I say the best one for juicing….and sweet.
Golden Supreme - they are gold/green and supreme as in taste, very sweet with a honey type flavor….also have a little blush on them….always very popular and we don’t have many.
For our markets, see the website for locations and times www.masonvilleorchard.com.
