Apple Varieties in Virginia:

York Apples

The Star of Apple Prime Time

Apple fans know and love York for its intense tart/sweet flavor, firm flesh and distinctive shape. York apples sell well during prime apple months-mid-October through February.

Nature's Perfect Keeper

Mother Nature created this marvel all on her own: an apple that holds its crisp texture over time, while becoming mellower and sweeter tasting. The York variety was discovered early last century, near York, Pennsylvania. Consistent solid sales have earned York Imperial a place on the top ten apple variety production list.
