Right now apple harvest is in full swing across the state, matching the changing leaves as they come in hues of reds, yellows, and greens. But an apple doesn’t need to be red to be ripe for eating; in fact the best way to figure out if an apple is ready is to check the skin, it should be smooth and reasonably bruise-free.
Across Wisconsin there are over 300 orchards with over 900,000 trees that yield over 60 million pounds of fruit. There are also over 100 varieties of apples grown in Wisconsin.
You can enjoy these Wisconsin treats and reduce the distance your food travels by purchasing Wisconsin products in season. Connect directly with farmers through farm markets, roadside stands, or u-pick orchards. Don’t miss out on the chance to have the freshest fruit around!
