Courious about apple harvest / winter freshness

Ida Red | Mar 22, 2007 08:46 AM

A friend of mine hates eating apples this time of year because she claims that they are stored from last year. I think she's being a bit extreme, but it made me wonder just when those apples I'm still buying at the famer's market (in NYC) have been picked. Does anyone know just how far into the cold season that an apple tree can produce fruit? I guess some varieties are better keepers than others?
And then there are spring apples too... does anyone know what or when that is?
