Wolf River

 

 

 

 

 

These gigantic apples are the largest in our orchard. Many grow to be over one pound and the size of softballs. These hardy apples are best for cooking and keep their shape quite well. Their name comes from the fact that they were first found growing near the Wolf River in Fremont, Wisconsin in 1875. You won’t find this heirloom variety in the grocery store, so come stop by Sweetser’s to check out this huge apples. They ripen towards the end of September.

  1. We’d like to drive over from Lee, NH, for the Wolf River apples when they are ready.

      Robert, We did not have many Wolf River apples last year. We do have a fine crop this year and they are in the market now. A fine time of year for a foliage ride and visit to our 200 year old orchard in Cumberland Center, Maine.
