Apples for the Retail Market
To keep up with consumers' ever changing tastes, growers should routinely convert orchard blocks to new cultivars to remain competitive in the retail market.
In this video, we will discuss apple cultivars that have characteristics well suited for direct market retail operations. These include favorites customers are already familiar with, and some less familiar ones that have interesting flavors and appearances that will help you differentiate yourself at the market. This list contains apples that ripen throughout the harvest season, and while they may not all store well, their excellent flavor make them ideal for the farmers market or roadside stand.
