Wanting to leave a legacy, in 2013 Kurt Leiterman graphed his own trees and now is producing apples and fruits on 2,000 trees! Memories of the good ole days drove him and his family out to the country to build off a family legacy and create memories for his children.
The early Lodi and Yellow Transparent are ready now at the Market on Military. Perfect for eating or applesauce, if kept cold, they hold the firm texture and sweet but tart flavor before sweeting and becoming softer.
Later in the year, Kurt will be bringing more apples from his 8+ acre orchard. Some he may be featuring are 18 varieties of apples including Yellow Transparent, Lodi, Oriole, Zestar, Dandee Red, Cortland, McIntosh, Macoun, Wolf River, Snow Sweet, Honeycrisp, Frostbite, Liberty, Empire, Spartan, Connell Red, Fireside, Ida Red, & Bartlett Pear. They also have a few Sweet Cherries, Peaches, Apricot, and Plum.
Apple-Licious orchard mission statement: To supply and produce quality healthy products for the community, grow with the community, supporting family values while honoring God.
Weather, temperature, and rainfall play a big role in production levels and quantity of local products. As much fun as growing apples is, there are some factors that are out of your control. Apple-Licious apples are grown just down the road from the market. That is super FRESH! His orchard is also open on Saturdays.
Stop at the Market on Military to sample the fruit from Kurt’s hard, but rewarding work.
