Autumn at Local Apple Orchards
on Tuesday, August 25, 2020
Blueridge Orchard in Denver Iowa
Welcome the crisp, sunny days of autumn with a visit to a nearby apple orchard. You’ll find old standards and varieties you may not have heard of like Sweet 16, Crimson Crisp and Ambrosia. Most apple varieties mature from early September through mid-October. As the season winds down in October, you may want to call ahead to check apple varieties, hours and days of operation.
