Wisconsin Apples

Wisconsin is a great apple producing state. The major growing areas are: Coulee County, the Bayfield area and west central Wisconsin. Of the 100+ varieties grown in Wisconsin, national favorites are the Jonathan, Golden Delicious and McIntosh. The McIntosh is an excellent apple for making applesauce because of its juicy pulp and rich tart taste. New varieties are always welcomed but you can never go wrong with the classics.

Fun For Kids
