Apple Picking Tips
Picking is done by rolling or twisting the apple away from the fruit spur. Harvested apples should be kept cold (33° to 35°F) for retention of flavor and quality. When stored in this temperature range, apples change very little. At 40°F, they ripen slowly, and at 60° or higher they mature rapidly. The best way to store apples is in perforated plastic bags in the refrigerator. Please rembember: Once an apple is picked it cannot go back on the tree. Please only pick apples you intend to keep.
This is what started it all! Apple picking is available during apple season, which usually starts in September. The apple picking season runs right into pumpkin season.
