Apples

Door Creek Orchard currently has 88 bearing varieties of apples, modern and heirloom, which ripen from July through November. We have even more varieties on young trees not yet of bearing age. In years where we have significant limb/tree die-back (usually due to age), we will also have apple wood available for smoking/grilling.

We know that the methods we use to grow food impact the environment of our entire community. Thus, we are committed to raising healthful, fine-tasting fruit with a minimum amount of input. To read more about our growing practices, please see our page here.

The list below is our comprehensive list, ordered alphabetically. Our apples ripen at very different times. For a list organized by approximate ripening order, please click here. For what is available now, please see our What's Ripe page.
