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)
  • Pinova (exquisite for pie: Pinovas soften to silk without turning to mush when baked and have just the right balance of sweet and tart to make a perfect pie. They are also quite tasty for fresh eating)
  • 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, and 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… 🙂
