The scent of apples fills the air as leaves turn on the hillsides and Friends, as you roam the countryside searching for apples old and new, here are opportunities to taste fruit with Fruition as well as (a not comprehensive!) list of orchards in our bioregion that offer some of the fruit varieties we at Fruition sell as trees.

Orchards to Sample Fruit Fruition Shares:
Note: We do not mean to suggest these orchards bought their trees from us; rather, if you are wanting to taste fruit before you decide to buy a tree from Fruition or anyone else, stop by these farms!
These Orchards share so many more heirloom and modern varieties than we can dream of so truly, don’t hold back in trying them all.
Also, if you have go-to orchards offering a diversity of delectable varieties that are not on this list, in the Northeast or beyond, leave a comment below! We’d love to shout them out, too.
Also, Fruition’s apple trees (including new varieties!) are available for pre-order November 16th!
