The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.

I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Malinda x Unknown, University of Minnesota, 1946

A word of caution: Chestnut Crab apples tend to disappear. One bite, two bites, three bites, the apple is gone and you haven't even come up for air.

Chestnut Crabs are discerningly sweet, like a soda made with sugar cane versus corn syrup. Besides being sweet, crunchy, and juicy, Chestnut Crabs are also possess a unique vanilla-nutmeg aromatic component that is just wonderful and completely unexpected from a 'crab' apple.

Chestnut Crab trees are scab-resistant, cold-hardy, and produce fruit at an early age. As such, they are a pleasure to have in our low-maintenance orchard!

Brix: 14 (Geneva reports Brix over 19)
