Apples, Apples, Apples!

Did you know there are thousands of apple varieties? We have tried hundreds of them here at Gopher Glen and kept 65 of the top ones for our customers to enjoy. We also grow many other old-fashioned varieties such as Rhode Island Greening, Skinner, Missouri Pippins, three Limbertwigs and other uncommon varieties not mentioned on our list. Experimental trees with eight or ten varieties each, as well as thousands of seedling trees grown from our own crosses, are beginning to produce totally new and never before seen apple varieties. It is all great fun! You never know — on one of your visits you may find yourself being a guinea pig for one of our brand new varieties.

Current Fruit Availability

 

We have multiple harvests of each apple variety and may run out between harvests. Please call the fruit stand (805) 595-2646 before making the drive for a specific variety. Our apple availability often changes hour by hour!
