Though we don’t grow apples at Quicksilver Farm (we have one tree we planted last year and it isn’t giving us fruit yet) we love it when the season begins. What a great fruit! Lasts on the counter for a long time, easy to transport and eat and if it gets mushy the Lipizzan horses love them. ..right out of our hands. This year we are blessed with a San Benito harvest, while late due to our cool spring, purported to be 25 percent above recent years. We are fortunate to have neighbors with both Fuji and Granny Smith, one for eating and one for baking. As part of a five-a-day fruit and vegetable regime, why not pick up an apple today and enjoy the crisp sensation and delicious taste?
