Apple Picking
« on: September 09, 2019, 08:20:14 pm »
Went apple picking in a orchard in Indiana and really enjoyed the day.  Was able to get my favorite type of apple Honeycrisp  for much cheaper than the stores are selling them. Also love the experience of picking my own.  What is your favorite type of apple?

My favorite eating apples are yellow Golden Delicious. But I buy all sorts of different apples for pies, depending on what it available to me.

We have an Orchard. We grow Apples, Peaches and Pears. These are the Fruits that my Husband loves to eat. I love Golden Delicious Apples. They are so sweet tasting to me and juicy. I am going to try and make some Homemade Apple Pies. I have never made them before, so I hope they turn out really good.

I don't really have a favorite apple, because I'm not a big apple fan. But I would enjoy a beautiful fall day in an apple orchard just for the fun of it! I've never been on an apple-picking adventure, but I think I would love it!  :peace:

I really don't have a fav, just like to see and smile the bag to see how good it smells, too make sure the apples are kinda soft and firm.

We have a great orchard nearby that always has autumn activities going on each year for the kids and adults. They have an option for picking your own apples I believe, but we usually just pick from the bushel baskets inside their storefront.


I enjoy all kinds, but golden delicious are my favorite.

Honey Crisp makes awesome applesauce with no sugar needed. Our church has an annual fall dinner and one of the members owns an orchard, so he brings down a truck with huge boxes full of Honey Crisp for us to take home all we want.

When I was W-A-Y younger lol and didn't have such mobility issues AND we lived in a different state cause Florida isn't an apple growing state we used to do some apple picking.  Awesome for you to be able to do.
