Re: where can I purchase Hawaii variety

You might try Hartman's Fruit Tree Nursery

The address, telephone number, and email contact are all listed on the website's homepage.

Found Hawaii's parentage (Golden Delicious x Gravenstein) along with a brief description of the apple by scrolling down Hartman's variety page.

Best luck :D

Please list your contact information.

Could not locate your business in our current Orchard Listings; is the farm in Berrien County (Michigan)?

If I've simply missed the listing, I apologise - if not, we would be delighted to add it.

They most certainly do :)

Add to your list an old Michigan favourite, McIntosh.

Jonathan and Macoun also serve the triple purpose re. colour and shape, fresh eating, and excellent baking.

Re: Apples similar to Honey Crisps?

I have become very attached to eating Honey Crisp apples and find that they are now no longer available (I assume they are out of season)?

Re: Mutzu/Crispin apples

Where can I buy Mutzu / Crispin apples ? Is there a market or local orchard in the Greater Vancouver area? Or can I get it shipped from an out of town source as a last resort? Thanks! If you can not find a reasonably local outlet, try King Orchards in the bountiful apple-producing state of Michigan...
