Bam! Four days after spring has sprung, the apple trees are going mad with blossoms. The latest blooms from our cider orchard on the outskirts of Sebastopol are below (see previous blog post for first round of blossoms). Remember the four categories of apples? Sharp = low tannin, high acid; bittersharp = high tannin, high acid; sweet = low tannin, low acid; bittersweet = high tannin, low acid.
March 22: Ashmead's Kernel (sharp), Hendrie Huffcap (perry pear, very rare!)
March 24: Red Jonathan (sharp), Virginia Hewes (bittersharp), Wickson (sharp), Golden Russet (sharp), Nehou (bittersweet), Espous Spitzenberg (sharp)
Note: We make alcohol. Must be 21+ to purchase or consume our cider.
