Things To Do » Apple Picking

Long Island Apple Picking

Granny Smith, gala, golden delicious, honeycrisp, fuji, red delicious, Cortland, empire, McIntosh, Albany beauty… there are many different varieties of apple, each with its own unique combination of size, flavor, and color. If you want to experience some of the best flavors available, you should go to some of Long Island’s many orchards and pick your own fruit. Apples begin to grow and ripen as the weather starts to cool off in the fall, so take your bushel home and warm up with some homemade apple pie or hot apple cider! Baked apples with a dollop of fresh whipped cream make for a fantastic treat as well and, of course, they’re quite tasty on their own.
