For this week’s photo challenge, here’s some photos of some heirloom apples we picked during a visit to a nearby orchard here in New Hampshire back in October . I can’t remember the name of this apple variety now!
They area very old variety, meant to be used as desert apples. Very sweet, and very firm. They were almost too sweet for an apple. So sweet that they made me wonder if maybe the old New England farmers probably did not have easy access to sugar.
And here’s the orchard’s apple picker.
