It’s Apple Picking Season on the South Coast!
The air is crisp and the kids are back in school. It is fall on the South Coast and that means apple season is upon us. Now is the time to enjoy all things apple: apple cider, apple festivals, candy apples, and of course apple picking!
Picking a perfectly ripened apple right from the tree reminds us of the abundance nature provides. It is a wonder that the delicate balance of sunlight, nutrients, water, and human care can yield a fruit as amazing as the apple.
The apple is such a familiar fruit that you may think you know all there is to know about it. Perhaps you are a more apple educated individual than I, but I was surprised to learn that:
- The crab apple is the only apple native to North America.
- The apple is a member of the rose family.
- An apple tree takes four to five years to produce its first fruits.
- Apples float because they are 25% air.
- It takes the energy of 50 leaves to produce one apple.
Apple picking season does not last forever, so don’t wait too long to get out there and see the mighty apple in its natural habitat. Fresh local apples are available at orchards and farms across the South Coast. Try Peters Family Orchard and Cider Mill, Dartmouth Orchards, Keith’s Farm, or Pocasett Orchards if you want to pick your own.
Many of the apple orchards in the area also sell additional produce at their farm stands as well as baked goods, jams, jellies, and other homemade goodies. Some offer hayrides, tractor rides, and corn mazes.
