Visit the Apple Barn at Sonlight Apple Orchard for your pick-your-own apple experience.

Texas tree ripened apples are extra sweet. Our harvest schedule is designed to enjoy apples at the peak of their flavor and sweetness. Keep them in your refrigerator and you will discover they keep well.

According to the Texas Association of Apple Growers, Texas tree ripened apples have a 14% higher sugar content than tree ripened apples grown in other parts of the country. Often, apples in food stores have been held in storage before they are shipped to Texas. In comparison, Texas tree ripened apples have a 41% higher sugar content than apples stored and shipped. That is why it makes sense to harvest your own Texas tree ripened apples.

We are using our 30 years of experience to concentrate on apple varieties that work best for us. We are re-establishing the orchard to highlight six varieties which ripen in September and October.

Each variety has unique characteristics, please review the apple variety page for detailed information.

The Apple Barn is an historic rock barn, one of 240 barns illustrated in "American Barns". Built in the 1860's using 4 existing tenant dwellings, it is located only 4/10 mile from the Courthouse Square on Hwy 29 East (the Llano highway).
