Jersey Mac Apples and Viking Apples

Who’s ready for some apple picking?  As we write this blog post it is near 90 and very humid, but that doesn’t mean that apple picking time isn’t right around the corner for us at Apple Holler.  We are picking Jersey Mac Apples and Viking Apples.

With 78 acres, 30,000 dwarf apple trees, and more than 30 varieties to choose from, we are fortunate to get an early start on having folks come out to pick apples.  Each and every apple variety is different from the other and we wanted to take this season to highlight each and every apple that is ready to be harvested.

We thought we would take the opportunity in our weekly blogs to inform you of what apples are either ready or just about ready to be harvested.  Additionally, we will share how best to use that apple, whether it is a good cooking or baking apple, how best to store it, and then give you a recipe that will work great with that apple.  Finally, we will share a healthy tip on why apples are good for you.

So let’s get started with our first apples of the season, the Jersey Mac Apples and Viking Apples…. read more
