Our orchard consists of dwarf trees which allows the fruit to be easily reached from the ground for easy picking! We have a vast variety of apples which consist of:
Jonamac: A red and green apple that is a cross between a Jonathan and a McIntosh that is aromatic, juicy, and has a semi-sweet flavor. Wonderful for snacking, baking, and making sauce.
Gala: One of the most popular snacking apples for its very sweet, crisp, creamy yellow flesh. It has a characteristic striped skin that is almost orange in color. Best used for: Snacking
Honeycrisp: America’s favorite snacking apple due to the exceptionally crisp and juicy texture as well as a complex flavor that is both tart and honey-sweet. It has a beautiful reddish-pink and gold color and is the most popular apple at Jonamac. Best used for: Snacking

Shizuka: Perfect for apple salad, eating fresh or juicing; Fruit is juicy, firm with and it’s slow to brown when cut. Sweeter character with a lack of acidity, and is the better choice if you prefer a sweet eating apple.
