Tukey Orchard Description

This orchard is here in Pullman for members of the local campus or others to do teaching, research, and/or extension work. Those are our top priorities. If we have surplus fruit or vegetables that will not be used for teaching, research, or extension projects we sell the surplus produce to the general public and apply that money to our operations funds. On site we have 83 varieties of apples; 11 varieties of pears; 6 varieties of sweet cherries; a small stone fruit variety block with tart cherries, 11 peach varieties, 8 apricot varieties, 3 prune varieties and 2 nectarine varieties; 3 strawberry varieties; and 20+ varieties of cane berries. All these fruit plantings are on about 10 acres total. In addition, our site also houses the 3-acres that are certified organic.

General information about fruit sales

Typically, we have a fruit sale in the middle to end of July for tart and sweet cherries for 1 to 3 Fridays and Saturdays depending upon crop volume. Our fall fruit sales usually begin some time in September with our fall crops; primarily, apples and pears. The highlight of our apple sales is the 83 varieties of apples from our variety block. Twenty of the 83 cultivars are different strains of Red Delicious, including the original Standard Red Delicious.
