Apple Picking

Visit an orchard, and you might expect to reach up and pick a few choice apples, or scramble up a ladder to reach the higher fruits. Time honored traditional apple orchard plantings have showcased individual trees with rounded heads lined up in rows. This is the apple tree schoolchildren see in storybooks and the one most folks expect when heading out to the orchard.
