More info on variety pricing, see ORDER SHEET.

GoldRush: King of the winter apple. Seriously our best storage apple; tart, crisp and firm, golden yellow.  A modern disease-resistant apple variety related to Golden Delicious, with crisp hard flesh and a good sugar / acid balance. Great for fresh eating, juice and cooking/baking.

Ida Red: This old-fashioned variety is excellent for baking, pies and sauce. The apples hold their shape perfectly, but make delicious soft and tender pies. They have a mild sweet-tart flavor and are extremely juicy.

Melrose: Large and slightly squat in shape, Melrose apples are a dusky red over a yellow-green background. Firm and pleasingly coarse in texture, this apple's creamy white flesh is juicy with a sweet and mildly tart flavor that becomes more floral and aromatic with age.
