Welcome graphic

Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
We are enjoying the harvest and hoping that the hard freeze holds off for awhile!  Apples are crisp and sweet and ready for picking! The nights with a light freeze have resulted in "water core" in some apples, particularly the Red Delicious.   While this can result in sweeter apples they may not last as long in storage.
The cooler night temperature have added to the feeling of fall and its perfect weather for apple picking.
We expect to be open through October, depending on weather,  and enjoy having guests out to share the season and its blessings.
Our Hours of Operation are Sunday through Friday from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm.  We are closed on Saturdays.
Just a reminder to dress for the weather and to wear closed in shoes, the fallen apples do attract bees.  Also bring a container to carry your havest home; boxes, bags, or baskets sized to hold the amount that you want to pick without getting too heavy.
We have orchard buckets that you can pick into and fruit pickers (sticks with a wire basket) to help reach the apples higher on the tree.
We hope you are able to join us 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:
1871 West South Slope Road, Emmett, Idaho 83617

Phone: (208) 365-1413

Our orchard store is stocked with local pressed apple cider, apple butter, fruit salsa, jams, and an assortment of apple related items.  We have take and bake apple pies (while supple lasts)--until I can make more!
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.
We look forward to seeing you in soon!
