Crop 101: PA 4-Wire Apple Trellis

SAMSUNG Since fall is approaching, it seems fitting to share with you information about one of our apple blocks, the PA 4-Wire Trellis. This block of apples was planted in 1990, so it is over 25 years old. It was Kuhn Orchards’ first venture to grow apples at a higher density with dwarfing rootstocks and a trellis support system. There are 550 trees/acre in the planting system versus the 40 trees/acre in a traditional standard apple planting. The trees in the PA 4-wire block have been trained to the wire so their branches extend and overlap, creating a hedgerow effect. The picture above shows the unique architecture of the tree and how the hedgerow is created.  The photo below shows how narrow we keep the hedgerow to allow adequate light penetration and airflow through the canopy. There are many, many varieties in the block, some of the main ones include: Granny Smith, GoldRush, Jonathan, and Summer Rambo. The PA 4-wire is a pedestrian orchard, meaning that all tasks (pruning, thinning, and harvest) can be completed from the ground without the use of a ladder. Keeping the trees at this low height of only 6 feet requires a significant investment of time in pruning. Read More...

Squash & Pumpkin Season

SAMSUNG If the candy aisle at the grocery store can have candy corn and Halloween sweets piled high (since pretty much the beginning of August...).  And if the pumpkin-flavored-everything frenzy has begun.  Then I guess Kuhn Orchards can jump on the bandwagon, but I promise....we're going to take it slow. The past few markets we've been bringing our adorable mini pumpkins and gourds, and delectable winter squash.  So you can start to slowly incorporate fall into your home decor, and start the fall season with some savory cooking. Soon enough we'll be bringing our decorative and edible heirloom pumpkins to the farmers market so you can really get into the fall spirit that everyone is starting to crave! Read More...

Stone Fruit Update

20160628_112320We will have yellow peaches through this weekend and next.  We anticipate having white peaches for a while longer yet too.  Our yellow nectarine supply is getting tight; however, we will have yellow nectarines this weekend, and limited supplies next weekend.   We will have white nectarines this weekend, and hope to have some for our following weekday markets. Long story short:  Buy your stone fruit now.  The quality is good.  The flavor is even better.  But the season will be coming to an end before you know it.  And then we'll be loving our apples, pears, squash and leeks!!
