Jim just picked up Cortland, Macs, Honey Crisp and Gala apples. They’ll be in the market today. DELICIOUS!!!!! and ONTARIO GROWN!!!!!!! We’re looking forward to also having the Ambrosia and Fuji varieties.
The first batch of new crop apple cider is being delivered Thursday. Due to the apple shortage this year there will be a price increase. Supply is projected to last until Christmas. We may miss out on Cider Slushies next year but we’ll see what next year brings.
We also have the most amazing Bosc and Flemish Beauty pears. I’ve always been a fan of the Bosc pear but this is my first time for trying the Flemish Beauties and I’m very impressed. They are sweet and juicy when ripe, their skin is firm. Definitely distinct from the Bartlett. I would say sweeter and juicier, and I haven’t found that browning in the center that occurs with Bartlett. Check them out.
Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Time to order your turkey.
