Stag Run Farm Apples
Below are the apples from Stag Run that you can purchase at the Garden on Tuesday, November 7 and Thursday, November 9.
- Pink Lady — a gourmet late apple that requires much attention from the grower. Pink Lady is a sweet-tart apple with crisp bite and effervescent finish. Also known as Cripp’s Pink, this apple has an attractive pink blush and gorgeous bright white flesh. It is slow to oxidize and so wonderful for entertaining. Firm and long-storing.
- Gold Rush — nice and juicy, sweet and crisp, this cross with a Golden Delicious has Winesap, Melrose and Rome ancestry. Gold Rush is an all-purpose apple and keeps well. One of Hattie’s favorite.
- Cameo — a great fresh eating apple and excellent baking apple. Cameo has a thin skin with a sweet and tart flavor with a hint of pear. Firm and crisp red striped apple.
- Fuji — crisp, firm and dense, juicy and one of the sweetest. Good keeper, and while mostly known as an eating apple, it holds its shape well and so is suited to baking.
- Gibson Golden Delicious — this fresh eating apple has a honey sweet flavor, is crisp and juicy and is an all-purpose apple. This mutation of Golden Delicious is less prone to russetting and has a nice smooth skin.
- Granny Smith — this hard sour apple is back! Great for cooking and eating raw. Nice in salads as it doesn’t brown quickly. And green apples have more protein, more fiber, a bit more potassium and iron than red. (Red is higher in beta carotene and antioxidants.)
- Honey Crisp — Well balanced, sweet, tart taste, honey crisp is fantastically crisp and juicy. It’s moderately sharp sub-acid taste is accompanied by mild aromatic characteristic. A good keeper, Honey Crisp is an all-purpose apple.
- JonaGold — a cross between a Jonathan and a Golden Delicious, JonaGold is a large delicious apple. Sweet and tart all-purpose apple.
- Stayman — Around since at least the mid-19th century, Stayman is a medium-sized red apple that is firm, tender, finely textured, juicy, crisp, tart and spicy. It is used as a dessert apple and keeps well.
- Winesap — This small to medium apple is an old cultivar from at least the 18th century. Winesap is sweet with a tangy finish and is an all-purpose apple.
