This week marks our last CSA delivery for the 2015 Summer Harvest season. Thank you for being wonderful members and supporters of the Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance! We have enjoyed planning, harvesting, packing, and delivering fresh fruits and vegetables for you over the last 24 weeks.

On behalf of the Penn’s Corner growers and staff, THANK YOU for being an awesome community of kind and supportive vegetable enthusiasts! 🙂

braeburncropBraeburn Apples

Grower: Dawson’s Orchards

Store: Keep them in the crisper drawer with a damp paper towel, or else keep them in perforated plastic bags in a cold shed or cellar. Apples give off a lot of ethylene gas, and so just one bruised and rotting apple will give off enough to swiftly ripen (and rot) the others. If you have any bruises or soft spots on an apple, set it aside for eating. Don’t store with the other apples.
