AppleWhat it's good for

Braeburn

Crisp and juicy Aussie native that is sweet enough for snacks, sturdy enough for pies

Cameo

New kid on the block with dense flesh that resists browning, making it good for salads

Ginger Gold

Early-season delicacies that are sweet, crisp and great for baking. They disappear after October, so get ‘em while you can.

Honeycrisp

From elegant salads to applesauces, this honey-flavored gem is gaining popularity because it does it all.

Newtown Pippin

Spicy, tart 18th-century variety that’s a pie-lovers’ dream

Pink Lady

Sweet, super-juicy and perfect for that late-season apple fix (when other varieties may taste mealy)
