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.

Loop Russet Baldwin

Product Details

Russet-fruited mutation of Baldwin, discovered about 1930 and introduced by H.S. Loop, Pennsylvania

Discovered as a chance seedling in Wilmington, MA in 1740, the Baldwin apple tree was for many years ubiquitous throughout New England and the mid-Atlantic. Unfortunately the frigid winter of 1934 destroyed 2/3 of the region's Baldwin trees, and farmers replanted to the impervious-to-cold 'Macintosh' cultivar.

Baldwin apples are prized as crisp, juicy dual-purpose apples with a great sweet-tart flavor. We look forward to describing their flavor firsthand after this fall's harvest.

Brix: 12.8 (from GRIN)
Harvest: Early/Mid-October
Flower: Mid-season
