It depends on your taste buds. We always recommend blending apples, using two or three varieties whether cooking applesauce, making cider, or baking. Depending on your taste, you may want to blend apple(s) that are sweet, tart, and tangy flavors. That’s where our fruit stand or farmer’s market can help you choose apples to your liking. While Gravensteins are the classic old-fashioned favorite, their season is short.
Some wonderful choices for pies are Newtown Pippin, Elstar, Granny Smith, Jonagold, Golden Delicious, and Spitzenberg. Depending upon what is available, the staff at our fruit stand can help you pick the perfect blend of apples for your pie filling.
