We went apple picking the last weekend in August when it was 90 degrees because I wanted to make sure we got apple picking before they were all gone! It's a good thing we went because Heinz Orchard closes this weekend. We've had plans almost every weekend since then! We picked a big bag of empire apples which I think are the best eating apples there are. They stayed fresh and crisp not in the refrigerator until we finished them last week. The apples were a little small and N2 picked some really tiny ones that were a little tart! If you can find somewhere the sells/grows Empire apples I would highly recommend getting a bushel of those!
