Apple Picking in Loudoun County

Everyone knows Virginia is for lovers—but did you know Virginia is for apple lovers as well? It’s true—Virginia is home to the finest apple orchards in the Mid-Atlantic! Check out these fun facts about Virginia’s infamous apple orchards, and discover yet another perk of living in Loudoun’s New Downtown:

1. Virginia’s climate is ideal for growing many types of apples, due the state’s rich soil and consistent rainfall, paired with generally warm days and cool nights.

2. Peak apple picking season in Virginia typically runs from September to early November, as apples require 80 to 175 days from spring bloom to fall harvest to ripen.

3. Virginia is home to over 11 major varieties of apples—each with their own unique characteristics! Virginia apple varieties include: Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Gala, Granny Smith, fuji, Ginger Gold, Winesap, Virginia’s York and rome.

4. Thanks to Virginia’s close proximity to a number of major markets, paired with the ideal growing conditions and nearly year-round availability found in the state has made Virginia one of the top apple-producing states in America.

5. Virginia’s delicious apples can be found in 15 states, and over 20 countries around the world!

6. Virginia apple orchards produce an average of 5-6 million bushels of apples each and every year.

10. 70% of Virginia’s annual apple harvest are used in delicious applesauce, apple juices, apple butters and apple ciders.
