We went to Solebury Orchard today. Amazing. They are doing the tall spinal pruning method and have what seemed to be thousands of trees. They were very friendly, the tractor ride was free, and overall it was a great experience. I went overboard and bought $75 worth of apples. We got Gold Rush, Keepsake, Pink Lady, Sundance, Enterprise, and an apple called Salida del Sol, which they claim is exclusively theirs. I haven’t tried it yet but will report this week.
Gold Rush lives up to the hype, left my kids wanting more. Hard to believe it gets better with age.
They said the Keepsakes they were selling in the market were from last year, kept in cold storage that long!
Also bought Harrow Sweet pears. Haven’t tried them yet. Will have one with breakfast tomorrow.
If anyone ends up in Bucks County, PA., go to Solebury, you won’t be disappointed. My wife kept saying, “oh, you are in heaven aren’t you.”
