Harvest Time

John and Ben spent the last few weeks picking the Pacific Crabapples at the farm. Even though the other apples and pears didn’t like the cold and wet spring, the crabapples did great.

The Pacific Crabapple is also known as the Western or Oregon Crabapple, and it is the only native crabapple in the Pacific Northwest which can be found along the Pacific Coast from southern Alaska to northern California up to about 1,000 feet in elevation.

This small and tart apple is about a centimeter long and was a highly important food source in the region to coastal indigenous peoples who harvested it annually.

Some of its uses include sauces, jellies, jams, culinary, cider, and wine. What this crabapple lacks in size, more than makes up for in flavor!
