Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
 
We have been enjoying the mild winter this year and the slow down in orchard activities. 
 
I have been purchasing Reisinger Honey that is produced here in Emmett.  Several friends were dissappointed that the honey was no longer available in area retail stores due to changes Reisingers have made. I am hoping to keep an assortment of sizes on hand and will stock Reisinger Honey in our Harvest Store in October.
 
The orchard is looking good as the starling birds have cleaned up last years ground fall apples and the pruning has just been completed.
 
We were notified last fall that the access road to our driveway would need to be named for emergency response vehicles  The neighborhood group submitted several choices for street names and we were notified that our new address is 4500 Harvest Lane, Emmett,  ID  83617.  So, we haven't moved the house or the trees but we are working on updating our address and hope that it doesn't generate too much confusion!
  
We are enjoying the season of rest but will also enjoy having folks out to pick apples again in October 2019.

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.
