 I want to THANK EVERYONE who came to Pick Great Apples during the weekends in September & October.

 I have made several notes on a few things to better serve you for the 2017 PICK YOUR OWN season.

 We are open everyday 9 am to 5 pm till December 31. We are closed Christmas Day . Closing early at 2 pm on Dec. 24 & 31.  January we are only Open Friday, Saturday, & Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm. Our Market is closed February, March, & April to clean up and paint to reopen May 1st!

I will keep Web Site updated on the varieties we have as we go along, but feel free to email me at cmoinfo@aol.com if you have a question. I plan to add more information on Varieties, “How care For”, Videos of many “Behind The Trees” short clips, and Pictures to our Site.

Speaking of Pictures, Please send us some of your “Special Pictures” while visiting Catoctin this year so can add them to our Gallery for others to see the Fun You had at Catoctin!! Plan to add more to our “Playground”Area for everyone to enjoy.

 

We are planting more CrimsonCrisp, Pink Lady, & Fuji trees in April 2017 to help meet the demand for these great Apple!!!

AUTUMN GALA is sweet and the crispiest of ALL Gala varieties. It was found here on a limb of a “Kidd`s D8″ Gala tree over 20 years ago. We did Patent this Apple. We name it “Harry Black Gala” in memory of my father after he died in 1998.

The “Trade” Name or the listing at the Tree Nurseries is “Autumn Gala”. Many Nurseries all over the world have test trees planted to see how it performs in other climates. Autumn Gala ripens in mid to late September compared to other Gala , that ripen in late August. It is the firmest or crunchiest of All the Galas too! Because Autumn Gala is so sweet, you can leave out the sugar when cooking your favorite recipe. Great for Eating, Cooking, & Salads.

We are happy to supply a variety of Apples & Pears to Frederick County Public School Lunch program nearly all year!

 You can Freeze any of the fresh Ciders to enjoy all year long! Just remove a cup full from the plastic jugs to allow for expansion,  replace the cap, and place it in your Freezer for up to a year to enjoy anytime till you get back to Catoctin for more!
