CURRENT APPLES IN FARM STORE

Gala “Early Sweet Eating”

Gala is one of the favorite summer apples. Gala is good for all purposes, including raw in salads. Gala is distinguished by a fine, firm, and crisp texture combined with a sweet, very juicy and spicy rich taste.

FLAVOR: Sweet
TEXTURE: Crisp
SUGGESTED USES: Eating, baking, salads, sauce

Honeycrisp “Fall Favorite”

The most sought after apple currently is Honeycrisp. This new apple is known for its superb flavor and crispness. Developed in Minnesota, it grows best in Northern climates. We have several of our own Honeycrisp apple trees here at Tuttles, but we find that Honeycrisp variety performs better further north in Indiana, Michigan and Minnesota. Currently Northern Indiana variety available.

FLAVOR: Sweet
TEXTURE: Hard
SUGGESTED USES: Eating

McIntosh “Old Fashioned Favorite”

McIntosh is a favorite for many, and is especially excellent for sauce and baking. It is reasonably crisp and firm though yielding. McIntosh’s flavor is tart balanced with sweet, with some acidity and a mix of berry and spice.

FLAVOR: Mild
TEXTURE: Firm
SUGGESTED USES: Eating, baking, salads, sauce

Jonathan “Children’s apple”

Beloved by kids of all ages for its tart flavor and small size, Jonathan’s influence has been spread by a number of well-known crosses. They have a spicy tang that some people also note in the apple’s descendants.

FLAVOR: Tart
TEXTURE: Crisp
SUGGESTED USES: Eating, baking, salads, sauce

Cortland “Applesauce Princess”

A cross between Ben Davis and McIntosh, the Cortland was developed by the New York Agricultural Experiment Station in 1898. It’s flavor is sweet with a hint of tartness. It is juicy and has a tender, snow-white flesh. Excellent for sauce.

FLAVOR: Mild
TEXTURE: Tender
SUGGESTED USES: Eating, baking, salads, sauce
