Edward's Apple Orchard to Open This Week

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Anyone who has been craving fresh apple cider donuts will soon be in luck, and this Friday they can have their fill. 
Edward's Apple Orchard opens for the season this Friday. The Poplar Grove and Winnebago locations will welcome customers starting at 9 a.m. Friday. 
While the orchard is known by many for its tasty donuts, it is also a hot spot for it's apples, and there are some newer varieties for customers to try this year.
"Our Zestar are a very new apple, they're delicious," says Orchard Manager Kristin Edwards. "They're crisp and sweet and juicy."   

Edwards says that customers can expect the Zestar to have a similar taste to the popular Honeycrisp variety. The difference, says Edwards, is that the Zestar apples are ready now, and the Honeycrisp won't be ready until later in the season.  

Both locations are open until 6 p.m. this Friday.
