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

Parentage Unknown, Whitney Nursery, Illinois, 1869

The Whitney apple makes me question everything I know about apple classification. If Whitney produces apples both smaller and larger the 2" line of demarcation between crab and 'not-crab' - is the variety a crab or not? Could Whitney re-attain its crab status in a year where it produces small apples? Of what benefit is the word 'crab' in our current apple lexicon? Shut up and eat the apple, Adam.

Whitney has a classic American apple sweetness with enough sourness to keep the flavor interesting as you reach for your second apple.

Whitney trees have thrived in our low-maintenance orchard as their vigorous, scab-resistant, and precocious.
