As of mid December, several varieties are keeping well in our root cellar. If you pre-order a gift box from us, just ask if you can sample some apples when you pick up your gift box. We will give you samples in exchange for a simple taste preference evaluation. Joraan’s Orchard was a community effort from the very start and continues to need a community of people to help evaluate experimental fruit varieties.
10 years after the original planting, we are harvesting delicious and intriguing experimental varieties that are at home in Joraan’s Orchard and thriving in our Certified Organic system.
Developing new fruit varieties requires regular evaluation of the plants themselves and the fruits they produce. Many of the traits we evaluate are quite subjective, like taste, texture and appearance.
So, more tasters means more feedback to help us select and propagate the very best apples.
Join us for an apple tasting – just think of it as a little snack for a good cause!
