Apple Varieties

Thank you for making Deardorff Orchards one of "America's Top Ten"  apple picking orchards.

On our farm, we grow 10 varieties of apples, on over 3,000 trees, and 6 varieties of Minnesota Cold Climate wine grapes, on 3,600 individual vines. Some of the apples, and all of the grapes are used in winemaking at Parley Lake Winery.

Take a look at our full apple varieties chart here.
