It's not just "Spys for Pies" anymore!

Pies, apple sauce or baked apples? Cortland are the farmer's favourite right now for apple pies and apple sauce.  When Cortland are no longer available, Spartan, Mutsu, Golden Delicious, and Northern Spy come to the rescue.  Pies taste even better when you pick the apples!


Ambrosia is medium to large in size and has mostly red coloration, with yellow patches. It has cream-colored, firm meat with a sweet, crisp, aromatic flavor reminiscent of pear and low acidity.

Bartlett Pears

Generally available in late August/early September, Bartlett pears have a thin, green skin that yellows as they ripen. Best picked firm and green, Bartlett pears become juicy and sweet as they continue to ripen off the tree, stored at room temperature. The perfect ripe Bartlett pear should be firm and slightly yellow, by the time it is soft to the touch, it is over ripe. They are terrific for eating fresh out-of-hand, a great choice for canning and while slightly under ripe, hold up well to baking. 

Bosc Pears

Cox's Orange Pippin
