VOORHEESVILLE: Apple growers expect bumper crop

According to Edna Litten, a sales buyer for Indian Ladder, apple season is the best time to be working at the farm.

"The smell in the cooler when it's filled with apples is just heavenly," she said.

While on the topic of heavenly apples, Ten Eyck wanted everyone to know that Honey Crisp, a tremendously popular "eating" apple will be available for purchase at the market, but not for picking.

"Sometimes it's hard to tell what's ripe and what isn't, and people get out there and start picking them, and they wouldn't be satisfied with them," he said of that particular variety.

To know which apples are the ripest and ready to pick, during the season, Ten Eyck recommends people use Indian Ladder Farms pick-your-own hot line (866) 640-7425, where the staff can give you information on which apples are best to pick, on a daily basis. You can also find season information at Indian Ladder Farms Web site, www.indianladderfarms.com.""
