Apples

Click on any image to see a larger, more detailed version.

Macoun Apple: An excellent dessert apple with a deep red skin. The flesh is juicy and flavorful and is similar in appearance to Red McIntosh. Macoun is good for home use, farmers markets, and fruit stands. Matures the end of September.

Royal Empire® Apple: The fruit produces significantly brighter and redder than its parents and presents a 75-90% deep purplish-red color with creamy white flesh that is moderately sub-acid. The tree is vigorous, upright, and has good crotch angles. 

Royal Red Honeycrisp® Apple: A new blush-type selection of Honeycrisp with the same crisp, juicy flavor and flesh texture as its popular parent but with better color and storage characteristics. As with the Honeycrisp the tree is low vigor and care should be taken not to crop it too soon.

Cherries


Gold Cherry: A very good producer. The fruit is very firm and golden yellow in color. Will pollinate most sweet cherry varieties.

Hedelfingen Cherry: Glossy, black sweet cherry of good quality. Good processor. Hardy and consistent cropper. Fruit resists cracking. Grower friendly tree structure with wide-angle crotches. A favorite selection for Eastern and Midwest growers.

Montmorency Tart Cherry Mahaleb: considered the best tart cherry for the market. The fruit is bright red & medium in size with a clear, juicy flesh. Self-fertile, winter hardy & very productive. Self pollinating.

Peaches


Gala Peach: A large, freestone peach with a melting texture. It has good flavor and colors nicely to a deep red over a yellow background. Matures late July early August. The trees crop annually and are somewhat resistant to bacterial spot.
NO LONGER AVAILABLE

Red Haven Peach: One of the easiest and tastiest peaches to grow. Hardy and very productive. Large, freestone fruit, very juicy and sweet. Good for pies, canning, cooking or baking. Ripens in June to July. Self pollinating. Average vigor; spreading habit. Height: 12-15 feet, moderate to rapid growth rate: Soil Moisture: Dry, Moist in clay, loam, sand, full sun.

Pears


Sensation Red Bartlett: This Red Bartlett strain originated in Australia. The skin color is a dark red blush with good quality creamy white flesh. Sensation Red is similar to Bartlett in shape. The tree is upright and less vigorous than its parent and is also subject to some color reversion. 

King Russet Bosc: The fruit is long and symmetrical with a uniform golden russet color overlaying yellowish-white flesh. It matures about the same time as Anjou. The trees are large and vigorous and require cross-pollination.  (using golden russet bosc pic)

Berry Bushes

General Growing Information for Raspberries and Blackberries
Soil pH level of 6.5 - 6.8 is recommended for all raspberries.

Blackberries


Sweet Ark (Ponca) Blackberry: One of the sweetest & most flavor-ful blackberry varieties. Good for home gardeners & market growers, matures early-to mid August.

Raspberries


Red Raspberry, Caroline: Most productive ever bearing red raspberry Caroline has a larger berry than Heritage & is more productive, with a rich, full & intense flavor. It is a very vigorous variety, with more toler-ance for root rot. The farther south you grow it, the earlier it will ripen. Will not tolerate high heat or drought.

Red Raspberry, Polana: Fruit: velvety, flavorful and sweet berries. Early August bearing. Fruit is medium-large, glossy, & cohesive with good flavor. This variety has shorter canes that are vigorous.

Red Raspberry, Prelude: summer bearing red raspberry is identified as the earliest ripening summer red raspberry, ripening in mid-June under N.Y. conditions. Although Prelude is also fall-bearing, it produces the biggest portion of its crop in the spring. Very winter hardy & vigorous, Prelude berries are round-conic, with very good flavor. An excellent choice when early fruit and quality are required, bears fruit 1 year after planting.

Yellow Raspberry, Double Gold: Fruit: berries have a deep blush, golden-champagne col-or, medium siae and conical shape. Excellent, very sweet flavor, mid season. Grows vigorously, suckers freely, show tolerance to disease

Strawberries


Brunswick Strawberry: Ripens early-mid season with outstanding flavor and berry size. Plants show very reliable vigor and disease re-sistance.

Cabot Strawberry: Late-mid season recommended for home gardeners and direct marketing growers. Cabot is known for its huge berries, excellent flavor, winter hardiness and disease resistance. It is by far the best tasting big berry ever! Plants are vigorous but may not run freely, indicating closer spacing may be required.

Flavorfest Strawberry: mid season fruits are bright red with exceptional flavor. Large berries hold their size through the season. For optimum flavor avoid growing on light, sandy soils. Its vigor makes it a good option for organic growers. Applications of nitrogen will need to be managed to avoid ex-cessive growth.

Asparagus


Jersey Knight Asparagus: Extremely vigorous, has large, succulent spears. The flavor is excellent, and the plant is resistant to rust, crown rot and fusarium. It also does better in heavy, clay-like soils.
