Apples a summer crop this season

Published Tuesday July 19

Nothing says summer like … apples?

Well, yes, they’re not just a fall fruit. Early apple varieties ripen in Jul and August. But this year, the apples are coming in even earlier. The harvest for some growers arrived weeks ahead of schedule thanks to a cooler and wetter winter after years of drought.

“Since I’ve been farming, this is the first time we’ve picked around the 4th of Jul” remarked Silvia Prevedelli of Prevedelli Farms near Corralitos. “We usually start picking at the end of July. But they’re ready. Mother Nature is ready.”

“They know Fuji, but they don’t know Gravenstein or what to do with it,” Prevedelli said. “I have to tell them.”

Or saute them with kale, Cohen suggested.
