With 22 varieties of apples ripening throughout the season at Altonen Orchards, you are sure to find your favorites. Most of the apples in ther farm markets are exceptional fresh-eating apples. Ida Red, Northern Spy, and Rome are also very popular for cooking. We grow some older apple varieties specifically to blend in our cider. Be sure to try some this fall.
The lists below and on the next pages describe each variety. The apples are listed in order of harvest from early August through October.
