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.

Product Details

Unknown Limbertwig Seedling, Swiss Settlers in Cumberland Mountains, KY, 1800s

Swiss Limbertwig apples are so good that after three bites of my first sample, I started brainstorming on how to devote more acreage to this fine apple. Swiss Limbertwig's flavor strikes an incredible balance between tantalizing sour and intensely sweet. The apple's fresh-cider tang undulates in your mouth as its sugary apple flesh bubbles and dissolves. Did I mention it was copiously crunchy and juicy?

Swiss Limbertwig trees are great performers in the low-maintenance orchard as they're vigorous, precocious, and scab-resistant.
