Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ...
The apples getting to be
a nice size aided by the thinning that was done in June.
The warmer temperatures are a challenge in making sure that the irrigation pipes are moved on a good rotation.
We have a good crew from the neighborhood helping with this project!
We have trees full of apples that we expect will be ready for our opening date of Monday, October 1.
Our Hours of Operation will be Sunday through Friday from 8:30 am to 6:30
pm. We are closed on Saturdays.
hope you are able to join us in October to enjoy the taste of fresh apples and the fall season.

Our orchard has a variety of trees including Red Delicious, Golden
Delicious and Rome Beauties. The Golden Delicious have a very good flavor and make a
great applesauce and dried apples. Red Delicious, one of the most famous American varieties, are wonderful
in Waldorf Salad. The Rome apples are a firm, slightly tart apple that are great for applesauce, caramel apples,
apple pies, apple dumplings, baked apples, and apple crisps. All three are a good eating apple depending on your preference
and are much better picked from the tree than from the grocery store.
All varieties are 85 cents per pound.
Our location and mailing address is:
West South Slope Road, Emmett, Idaho 83617

During October, our orchard store is stocked with local pressed apple cider, apple
butter, fruit salsa, jams, take and bake apple pies, and an assortment of apple related items.
Our goal is to make your visit to our orchard a family adventure that you will
want to repeat every year as some of our guests already do.
Hope to see you in October!
