Description

Valley Flora Farm in Langlois grows a number of different types of apple, and, depending on the time of year, those varieties will include:

Late Summer (beginning in August)

  • Williams Pride (medium-large apple, dark red with crispy white innards and tart flavor; it’s not unusual for the deep red color of the skin to bleed into the flesh, producing an attractive marbled appearance)
  • Wenatchee Early (likely an heirloom apple, with green and red skins, sweet and crispy)
  • Chehalis (resembles Golden Delicious in looks and flavor but the fruit is larger and crisper)
  • Sansa (medium-large with red striped yellow skin, yellow flesh. Sweet like Gala, but with some tartness to it)
  • Akane (especially fine red dessert apple derived from Jonathan. Sweet, rich, spicy flavor)

Fall (late September through October/November)

  • Liberty (yellow skin with red overtones, crisp white flesh, a harmonious sweet-tart taste)
  • Topaz (crispy, medium to large apples with a distinctive, sweet-tart flavor often compared to Honeycrisp)
  • Honeycrisp (pleasant sweet-tart flavor that varies in strength depending upon the maturity of the apple)
  • Cox’s Orange Pippin (stripey orange/red/green skin with fantastic, complex flavor. An old-timey variety)
  • Fiesta (medium sized fresh eating apple with red/orange/yellow flesh, very sweet and juicy)
  • Sweet Sixteen (red-striped skin with crisp juicy texture and exotic yellow flesh. Excellent for eating, cooking)
  • Stayman Winesap (firm yellow flesh; crisp texture; tart, rich wine-like taste. Some say it smells like cinnamon)
  • Fuji (satisfying crunch and juiciness to them; fairly sweet with only a slight tartness)
  • Gold Rush (last one of the season, and the BEST storage apple ever, in both ours AND Valley Flora’s opinion! Wonderful sweet-tart flavor, very juicy and crunchy, and stays that way for a long time…)

The varieties change about every week to 10 days. We may not always be able to pinpoint exactly which variety you’re getting, but you can count on the fact that ALL of Valley Flora’s apples are crisp, juicy, and sweetly tangy – AND grown using organic practices. Don’t be afraid to try a pound or two – it’s highly unlikely you’ll be disappointed… 🙂

    My favorite organic apple these days? Definitely “Gold Rush” – nice and crisp, never gets mushy, with a fabulous sweet-tart tang to it!
