Picking under the apple tree
Orchard offers opportunity to pick apples, pears
September 4, 2002
It’s mid-morning when Ken Krause winds his golf cart through one row of apple trees into another, stopping near one tree loaded with red Jonathan apples. Krause picks one of the apples hanging near him, pulls a small knife out of his pocket, slices off the top of the apple and holds it to his nose. “When you cut an apple, you should smell it,” he says. “If it smells starchy, it’s not ready because the starch hasn’t turned to sugar.” Krause makes his golf cart trip through his orchard daily smelling and taste testing his variety of apples and Asian pears, deciding which ones are ready to be picked. “I bring them down to my wife,” he said. “She’s the one who makes the final decisions.”
