Welcome to Candy Apple Orchard's web site ...
We have survived the winter!! The short drop in temperature on Tuesday,
April 4 may have had some impact on the buds but we won't know until later.
The trees are just starting to leaf with blossoms to follow. Orchard pruning has
been completed and the mowing seasaon has started! Irrigation is to start sometime in the next week but with all the
rain, we may not set up pipe for a week or two.
Already thinking ahead to the apple season and hoping you will plan to join us then.

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:
West South Slope Road, Emmett, Idaho 83617
Phone: (208) 365-1413
Our orchard store will open again in October with 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!
