When it comes to picking apples from trees we always plan to do this activity on a breezy or after a hard rain day because it is easier to gather newly fallen apples off the ground.
We will pick ripe and almost ripe apples from the tree, because you can put hem in cardboard boxes and large brown bags, then store in a cool area that is 60 to 70 degrees. The fruit will ripen this way.
Call the farm that offers “you pick it apples” make sure that the apples are ready for harvest. Know that we have taken day trips to get to a farm in Missouri only to arrive and find out that they were picked clean of apples.
