Buy your apples from the birthplace of the Honeycrisp! Each year the Arboretum’s wide selection of apples is on sale at the AppleHouse. Look for the University of Minnesota’s newest introduction, First Kiss, as well as other delicious apples, including SweeTango, Zestar!, Honeycrisp, Haralson, Honeygold, Snowsweet and many others. The selection changes throughout the harvest, so call ahead to see what varieties are available.
Shoppers will also find a wide variety of pumpkins, squash and gourds grown at the Arboretum. This year gardener Jenny Thull planted 325 varieties of cucurbita (pumpkins, squash and gourds) from around the world. They come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Carve them, use them in seasonal displays or try one of Thull’s recipes.
