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 […]

Squash & Pumpkin Season
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 […]
Stone Fruit Update
We 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 […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Katy?
We are still devouring blueberries in our household. I’m convinced that my 2 year old just swallows them whole; he consumes them that quickly. A friend gave us 3 ginormous zucchini from their garden, so I went on a mission to use it all, and I was reminded of this awesome cake I made last […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Sandy?
This market season Sandy is going to 4 markets a week. That is a lot of markets for one individual. So she’s on the run quite a bit, and needs yummy food that transports well. She’s been enjoying the summertime peaches two ways while at market: 1) oatmeal with peaches and 2) yogurt with peaches. […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Diane?
Diane says Dandee Reds are a great snacking apple. They are a perfect size – not too small and not too big, and they have a tart sweet flavor. Dandee Red apples are a ‘sport’ of New England’s MacIntosh. Most MacIntosh sports do not grow well in more southern states because it is just too hot; […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Sidney & Anthony?
These two are two peas in a pod. They were both asked “Whatcha Munchin’?” separately, and both responded simply with no embellishment, “yellow nectarines.” (I think they were both hot and tired; I did ask them right before lunch.) We had a fabulous variety earlier in the season called “Avalon.” They were a smaller nectarine, […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Mary Margaret?
Mary Margaret is munchin’ on our Everbearing strawberries. Don’t let these strawberries fool you at market. They are UGLY. They are tiny and cracked. Some are knobby and mis-shapen. They are just not attractive like traditional June strawberries. But MY-OH-MY, are they flavorful!! Dave said, “They are so tasty, they will make you cry!” (I […]
Whatcha Munchin’, Dave?
Dave was told last weekend by one of our 14th & U customers that Summer Rambo apples make the best apple dumplings. Traditionally, Summer Rambo apples are known for the great applesauce they make. And Dave agrees, Summer Rambo are great baked too. Mary Margaret made a Summer Rambo and Blackberry cobbler this week. The […]
How to place a Farmers Market Order
For years, Kuhn Orchards has been willing to take special orders from our customers for produce that they plan to pick up at market. We have operated on good faith that the customer will show up and pay for the item. However, we have had many instances where customers have not picked up items that […]
