North Georgia Apples
The Apple Festival is held in Ellijay, GA which is the heart of Georgia’s apple country. It’s nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and home to some of the best-tasting apples from late August to December of every year. Ellijay apples actually hold the distinction of being the first new crop of apples available in the entire country! What makes this fruit from Georgia’s apple capital so special? It’s the climate, the soil, and a wide variety of other factors. There’s also a diverse selection of different types of Ellijay apples available, some of which include: Ginger Gold, Pristine, Swiss Gourmet, Ozark Gold, Jonathon, Detroit, Gala, Red Delicious, and Gold Delicious.
