Apples Galore – The first signs of fall include apples showing up at the farmers’ market. These crisp, sweet snacks remind us of the changing seasons and are a welcome sight when we’re all sick of looking at zucchini by the end of summer. We discovered a website called OrangePippin.com that catalogs over 600 varieties of heritage and cultivated apples from regions all over the world. Have you ever heard of a Shizuka or Irish Peach apple? Find out more about little-known cultivars, or read up and vote on your favorites. Click on the Orchards tab to find a U-pick farm near you, or register your own apple orchard (or mini-orchard) in the Apple Tree Register. Join the forum to discuss care for your trees, and look for or post apple-related upcoming events. It’s the perfect way to kick off our fall growing season. By the way, the website also features information on plums and cherries too.
