Philip Orchards Opens on Labor Day Monday Sept. 1, 2014


THE LATE SPRING THIS YEAR BROUGHT SOME SURPRISES. We have lots of large-size Golden Delicious, Mutsu and Idared, and plenty of good Red Delicious and Jonagold. The McIntosh and Cortland vary. They are good in some orchards and scarce in others. BUT we have almost no Empires. WE HAVE MANY LARGE HARROW SWEET AND ANJOU PEARS but Bosc and Bartlett Pears are scarce. The Northern Spys, Romes and Galas are as usual. Here are are "First Picking" Dates. All varieties will be available after the date we open and the orchards will stay open for pick your own into November.
