Fresh Apples

We get THE BEST apples you can buy anywhere in Tennessee! That’s because they come from the north, where crunchy, juicy-sweet apples grow. And our apples come from small family farms that care about their growing practices and follow an IPM (Integrated Pest Management) protocol to minimize their use of pesticides. Sometimes, we offer organic apples, too.

If you want to have some great apples, plan to order with us every fall!

 

How To Order Apples With Us

We offer apples starting in September and usually through December. You can see what’s available now by checking our current order forms, or sign up on our email list, and we’ll notify you when it is time to order.

Apples 101

There are so many beautiful and tasty apples to choose from; it can be hard to choose. We hope this brief introduction to each juicy treat will help you decide which one’s best for you. Our recommendation is that you get fresh eating apples and canning apples early in the season (September/October) and then get your storage apples later on (October/November). There will be fewer varieties to choose from in November/December/January as the orchard sells out of certain varieties earlier in the season, so don’t wait ’till the last minute if you’re after a certain kind of apple.

Best Uses:

Great for pies and cider! Also preferred as a dessert apple after they have had time in storage to mellow out. More tart and firm than most popular varieties, so most people don’t like to eat them out of hand.

We made some great applesauce with the Jonagold “juice” apples. It has good taste, texture and color! Also, we used our juicer for the grapes and then madegrape jelly. This was much simpler than cooking and then straining the grapes, and maybe we were able to keep a few more nutrients as a result of less cooking.

Thank you for facilitating this order. The prices were great!

Thanks!

Hello Erin!

I’d be glad to share my experience. I only made jelly with my grapes (Concord) and plain applesauce with the bushel of Galas I purchased (my first year and didn’t want to bite off too much!) My husband and a few friends I have shared with absolutely love the grape jelly. I used a less-sugar pectin and followed the recipe that came with it, and it smelled and almost tastes like the grape-flavored sweets (Jolly Rancher comes to mind). I used a potato-masher to crush my grapes, pretty easy. The applesauce is plain, no sugar or cinnamon (I actually forgot these, haha), but it was very tasty without anything added to it! I plan to use some to make apple butter later on. I am looking forward to ordering again with you!

~Amy

The Concord grapes that we ordered were very nice…we simmered them down in a stock pot and then pressed them through cheesecloth and froze the juice to make jelly this winter. We were very pleased with them, as we found no rotten grapes in the whole box….
thank you very much!!

Hi, Erin,
We made wine with the grapes! Of course, we won’t taste the wine for about a year. However, the juice and aroma was excellent!! Just the juice was SWEET! I was VERY happy, and wish I could get 2 or three more cases.
I wish I had bought apples. I heard very good things from a few people who DID buy apples.

My name is Greg Stanford. I picked up 2 grapes, 2 Mutsu apples, 2 Red delicious apples, and 2 roam apples. These were for 2 different families.

First let me say all the apples were in good condition and each household was very very pleased in the quality of apples.
We purchased 2 grapes and 1 mutsu and 1 red delicious. We just finished eating our last grapes yesterday. We had only ordered one box of the grapes, but when we picked them up, we tasted of the grapes and were so overwhelmed by their sweetness, juciness, and tenderness that we bought another box right there on site. We ate grapes for 2 weeks but also were able to can several batches of grape jelly. This jelly had the richest grape flaver I have ever tasted in a jelly. We boilled the and pressed them out with a juice press and were amazed how little waste there was and how much juice they made – they were awesome!!

We were used to red delicious apples and these were very good and we enjoyed them to eat as well as made applesauce and put some in the freezer, BUTTT the Mutsu – this was our first time to have Mutsu apples but it will not be our last. They were big apples, juicy apples (I had to keep wiping the juice off my chin) and full of flavor. We ordered these based on the reccomendation of your web site and we were not dissappointed. They did everything well: ate well, froze well, great applesauce and apple butter, and cooked great. These will be our apples of choice in the future.
.
Thanks for letting us be a part of this co-op and look forward to any future opportunities, especially in the fruits.

I bought Mutsu apples this year for the first time, after hearing good things about them. I did not put any up for canning, just to have for fresh eating and we are still eating them and have not lost any to spoilage. (December 8th, 2009) They are a very good apple.

I also bought the Concord grapes and made juice with them. After heating them I put them through a hand sieve, canning the juice and saved the pulp for jam and syrup. Both varieties came out very tasty. This is the 2nd year I have bought the Concord grapes and have been very pleased with them.

Thanks again for all your efforts

The Organic Jonagold Apples were amazing..we ate them raw, canned them as applesauce, apple butter and sliced apples…all amazingly sweet without added sugar!
We used Concord Grapes to make jelly and added Sucanat as our sweetener. The jelly came out great..firm and sweet..full flavor..yum!

The gala and mutsu apples are absolutely delicious. The mutsu are a little more tart and crispy than the gala. We love them both raw. Together they make outstanding applesauce….no sugar needed! I made the sauce in the crock pot by adding some water and a stick of cinnamon. It is so good served warm.

We have used the concord grapes in smoothies….grapes, plain yogurt and honey….yummy! My blender processes the skins and seeds almost completely. I have also made grape juice in my juicer. I wish I could give everyone a taste. It is so sweet that I actually added apples to it to cut down on the thickness and sweetness some.

I am looking forward to more apples and grapes soon!

I made jelly from the concord grapes with Pomona’s pectin and used only a minimal amount of sweetener from organic cane juice crystals and honey and the batches turned out superb! I was able to double batch amounts with the excellent pectin. I also made juice for drinking with the grapes and apples and added a bit of bubbly water – yum! The gala apples are crisp, sweet and on the small side (which is great for kids!). I can’t wait to get more apple varieties from the next order and even though the grape process is time consuming I plan to juice and process for drinking. Thank you Bulk Natural Foods

Erin, Our last two Ida Red apples are gone! The last ones were as good as the first. They did not shrivel, have bruises, or bad places. They have kept better than any other kind of apple I have tried, and we really like the flavor.

I am attaching a picture I made today (June 4). I look forward to ordering more in the fall. Thanks so much for making these apples, and other items, available to us.

Hi Erin,

Just want to say thanks for all your work to bring good food into your community and then making it available to those outside it as well. We are thoroughly enjoying the apples! I started canning them today and have been so pleased with the quality, there hasn’t been a bad one in the whole bunch. Thanks so much for all your hard work.

I made a point to bite into as many varieties of apple as I could just so I could write this review! Ida Red is my personal favorite. It’s crunchy, and sweet tart; full of flavor and the slices hold their shape when I make a pie. It keeps great! Last year, my Ida’s kept until March stored in my husband’s shop until I could move them to the fridge. Mutsu’s are fantastic – huge, juicy, crisp and very flavorful. These are supposed to keep very well, but they do develop spots in storage that are a bit deeper than the skin. I love the flavor of Cortlands, but the skin is thick and they aren’t crunchy. Red Delicious apples are quite good. They’re crunchy when fresh, juicy and flavorful; not as sweet as Fuji or Cameo. Fuji’s are too sweet for me, but they were one of our top 4 sellers. (The others were Gala, Golden Delicious, Mutsu.) They’re the crunchiest apple of those that I bit into. Cameo’s were very popular in our December order. These are as sweet as a Fuji, and they have a fantastic crunch – like a Honeycrisp. My husband and children love these! One more: Jonagolds are sweet and flavorful, but not as crunchy as some of the other varieties.

Of course, the Concord grapes are everyone’s favorite. From all the people that don’t have internet, I heard more raving about the grapes than anything else. They really were spectacular!

Hey Erin,

We liked both the Fuji and the Mutsu that we got. The Fuji have a great flavor for eating, and I am making pie with the Mutsu. It does hold its shape very well and with a few spices makes for a tasty pie.

Thanks for arranging everything.

Hi Erin,
It was such a delight to see you family! It brought up my fond thoughts and feelings of our days raising our family — which was much like yours.

Golden delicious apples: applesauce and eating. The organics were very nice with little loss to bruises etc.

Honey Crisp: The ultimate eating apple! Thin, chewable skins, crispy, sweet flesh. These keep well (3-6 months) if kept in the fridge, but note that these bruise easily, so handle with care. The apples in my bushel were very large and of nice quality.

Thank you for your business, you save me time and energy.

We are using the Fugi just to eat because they are our favorite. The rest of the Mutsu I plan to freeze for pies and fried apples. The quality of the fruit is excellent and I can’t wait to order more fruit.

I have been using Ida Reds for about 5 years. I have some in the freezer from last year and you cannot tell the difference in this years, they keep their quality. My friends bought red delicious, golden delicious and fuji. They were thrilled at the quality of them this year. Good job on delivery, no waiting line and all neatly boxed.

Erin,
The plums and Gala apples were spectacular and there was little or no wastage. But we were disappointed with the Jonathans. Around 90% had black fungus/rot (?) spots and could not be stored. We had to peel them and freeze them immediately. I know that your produce is generally very good (others have given me great reviews) and so I know that you would like to know if things were not up to your normal standard.

Thanks for all your hard work. We love having our fruit!

I bought Mutsu which made great applesauce. The Gala we are eating. I had some Courtland also which made a good pie, plus the fresh apple cake we like. I put most of those in the freezer. My daughter in law had Ida red, Jonathan and Cameo. The Cameo was her favorite. She said it held up well and did not mush up plus it was great to eat. I also made apple jelly using my Courtland. We are still enjoying them.

Hi Erin,
We bought Ida Red apples. They were nice and firm. We like Ida Reds for apple sauce. They need very little if any sugar and make a pretty pink color apple sauce (we wash,core, & dice them with skins left on).
We also juiced some. We used a 45 year old centrifugal juicer (Acme). It allows some pulp through. The kids said when we strain it that it tastes like store bought unsweetened apple juice.

Karen

Hi Erin,
I bought Mutsu and (organic) #2 Jonathans. Mutsus are great for eating–have not cooked with them–they are large and have a great balance of sweet/tartness. The Jonathans are large, but somewhat mealy and a disappointment. I have used them for applesauce which is OK.

Apples are quite good. The Concord grapes are opening a new world. I’ve made grape juice and I’m going to research how to make grape jam on the internet. I ordered a box of Superfood. The box and its contents weighed 6 pounds. The empty box and plastic bags weighed 9 oz. I seem to recall the weight of the powder was to total 6.5 pounds, but I may be misremembering.

Overall, we are pleased with the apples and grapes; however, I don’t normally peel my apples but some of these were very waxy or greasy and it wouldn’t come off with soap and water so I had to peel it. Also, so far some of the apples don’t really taste fresh…but most do. Overall I am pleased and I will order again but I will go with a different apple.

The gala and mutsu apples are absolutely delicious. The mutsu are a little more tart and crispy than the gala. We love them both raw. Together they make outstanding applesauce….no sugar needed! I made the sauce in the crock pot by adding some water and a stick of cinnamon. It is so good served warm.

We have used the concord grapes in smoothies….grapes, plain yogurt and honey….yummy! My blender processes the skins and seeds almost completely. I have also made grape juice in my juicer. I wish I could give everyone a taste. It is so sweet that I actually added apples to it to cut down on the thickness and sweetness some.

I am looking forward to more apples and grapes soon!

Already processed and will have to order more on the 1st. Makes a great Waldorf salad!

I made jelly from the concord grapes with Pomona’s pectin and used only a minimal amount of sweetener from organic cane juice crystals and honey and the batches turned out superb! I was able to double batch amounts with the excellent pectin. I also made juice for drinking with the grapes and apples and added a bit of bubbly water – yum! The gala apples are crisp, sweet and on the small side (which is great for kids!). I can’t wait to get more apple varieties from the next order and even though the grape process is time consuming I plan to juice and process for drinking. Thank you Bulk Natural Foods
