It's hard to say goodbye to Michigan summers, but Michigan apples make the transition a little easier.

See when to expect each of Michigan's many varieties of apples including Honeycrisp, Red Delicious, Fuji and more.

Honeycrisp, Gala and Fuji are the three varieties of apples which bring in the most money across the United States. This is good news for Michigan, since Michigan-grown Gala, Honeycrisp, Fuji and Jonagold apples have been found to have better taste than the same varieties grown elsewhere.

The calendar below will help you prepare for when your favorite variety of Michigan apple is ready for harvest, but there's never a bad time for a trip the orchard. You'll spend more than you planned for after you count the apples, cider, donuts and who knows what else, but you'll be happy you did.
