Royal blush

The Sun kisses apples ripening at Nagog Hill Farm in Littleton earlier today.


  1. In some places the apple harvest has already started, and the earliest ones (like Striped June) are almost done. Are you seeing Yellow Transparents and other early types yet?


    1. Tom: yes. I've heard from folks in warmer places where the harvest has been ongoing for a month or more. Here in New England we still have a few weeks to go, I think.

      The earliest earlies I am used to seeing are Vista Bella, Paula Red, and Lodi. Yellow Transparent usually shows up one or two weeks after that.


Join the conversation! We'd love to know what you think.
