Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ... 
Spring came too soonWhile the trees were still in blossom we had several day of low temperature nights that took out most of the blossoms...that is not a good combination!
Some trees also suffered some damage with the early freeze last fall with a some dead wood that will need to be trimmed out.
From a distance the orchard looks great, but on closer inspection there is not much fruit developing.  We are praying that we will have enough fruit to open in October but we will have to wait and see.
I will keep an update here on our status for the October 2015 u-pick season!

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 is closed for the season.  During apple season we have 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!
