Apples are a favorite among families, both to pick and to eat! Enjoy a family daytrip this fall to an apple orchard where you can pick apples together. Apple crop seasons vary but are generally September through October in Maryland, with some varieties possibly starting in August.

Maryland Apple PickingTo pick an apple, roll the fruit upwards off the branch and give it a twist. Apples ripen from the outside of the tree towards the center, so the apples on the outside branches will be the ripest. Once picked, they stop ripening.

Apples will store well and can be eaten in a variety of ways: fresh, cooked, frozen, canned and made into many tasty desserts! Pick your own apples from these Maryland apple orchards for lots of family fun and great memories. Be sure to call before heading out to a farm to check for picking schedules and availability!
