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.

You might know Minnewashta by another name.

Minnewashta reset the standard by which I judge summer apples. They possess a wonderful depth of flavor beyond sweet and tart that I had previously reserved for fall varieties. It's not just a violin or oboe playing Minnewashta's melody, it's a whole dang quartet.

Beyond its great flavor, I appreciate Minnewashta's extended harvest window. Mid-August, when green with a red-blush, Minnewashtas are a crunchy, sour treat for eating or baking. Over the next two weeks its red blush gradually expands to cover its surface and they have reached maximum sweetness. You can't go wrong either way.

Brix: 14
Harvest: Late August
Flowering: Early/Mid Season
