The Honey Crisp Apple
One of the benefits of living in the northeast again is that Connecticut has wonderful fresh fruit grown locally. In Cheshire, there are four farms within a 3 mile radius that sell excellent fresh fruits and vegetables late Spring through Autumn. So, if you happen to be on a Fall foliage road trip, stop in at one of the following farms:
When I first discovered these farms last year, I realized I was in apple picking country, literally. All of the above farms have fruit picking – apples, blueberries, raspberries, pears, and more – but the farms also have their own stand alone buildings where fruit and vegetables are sold along with cider, donuts, pumpkins, corn, and more.
This past weekend, I was at Norton Brothers Fruit Farm and bought freshly picked very sweet raspberries that reminded me of the berries in the Aix-en-Provence summer market, plump juicy blueberries, and 20 pounds of Honey Crisp apples that I plan to spend the next few weeks eating.
