A New Apple is Born
It is a pleasure to introduce the first Silken apples into our Pick Your Own line-up this year. Three hundred trees were planted in the spring of 2010 and there is already a first small crop. It was decided to plant Silken in response to the high demand for Honey Gold which ripens later in the season.
Silken is a Honey Gold cross that ripens in the first weeks of September and we hope will satisfy that early demand for a Yellow Delicious type apple. With a unique white gold porcelain colour, this is a very attractive apple that is firm, extremely crisp with a very mild flavour.
In taste tests, the Silken was rated very high in flavour, appearance and overall appeal.
We hope you will enjoy!
