Stag Run Farm Apples
- 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.
- 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.)
- 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.
- 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.
- Liberty — These small apples are a cross between a Macoun and a Japanese crab apple. Liberty is a dark red apple with a delightful aroma. Juicy and crisp, fine flesh with a sub-acid flavor. This is a desert apple, great in salads or fresh eating.
- 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.
