Here at Hicks Orchard we grow over two dozen varieties of apples. They range from eating and baking apples to varieties specific to hard cider production. Below is a list and brief description of the varieties available in the Apple Barn at Hicks or in the orchard as Pick Your Own.

Always handle your apples with care as they can bruise easily and bruising reduces storage life. You can store your apples in the "Crisper" drawer in your refridgerator. The best temperature is about 35 degrees F and with high humidity. Most apples will store very well this way. Avoid freezing them unless you cut, slice and pack them in freezer bags with sugar and lemon. 

The longer the apples are in storage, the sweeter they become as the starches convert to sugar. We do not wax our apples or dip them into post-harvest fungicides and we do not wash them before packing, so please wash them at home before eating
