Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
This season of picking is nearing an end but we are still u-picking apples!  We are open through this week (Oct. 30 - Nov. 4) with our last day scheduled as Sunday, November 6.
There are still lots of rome apples on the trees and some red delicious.   The u-pick price for apples is 85¢ per pound for both varieties.
Our hours are Sunday - Friday from 8:00 am - dusk...we are always closed on Saturday.  Wednesdays we do run errands so call before coming to check on our schedule.
The  Orchard Store is open with the usual supply of apple butter, pumpkin butter, and fruit salsa. 
We have our picnic tables out and you are welcome to bring a meal or snack to have in the orchard.
Be sure to dress for the weather forcast and closed shoes are recommended.  Bring a box or basket to carry your apples home. 
We always look forward to apple season and  are sorry to see it coming to an end!
We hope to see you before this harvest season is over!

Our orchard has a variety of trees including Red Delicious, Golden Delicious and Rome Beauties.  The Golden Delicious have a very good flavor and make a great applesauce and dried apples.  Red Delicious, one of the most famous American varieties, are wonderful in Waldorf Salad. The Rome apples are a firm, slightly tart apple that are great for applesauce, caramel apples, pies, apple dumplings, baked apples, and crisps.  All three are a good eating apple depending on your preference.


Our location and mailing address is:
1871 West South Slope Road, Emmett, Idaho 83617

Phone: (208) 365-1413

Our orchard store has apple butter, fruit salsa, jams, take and bake apple pies, and an assortment of apple related items.
Our goal is to make your visit to our orchard a family adventure that you will want to repeat every year as some of our guests already do!
