Virginia apples come in many varieties, including Golden Delicious, Rome, Granny Smith and Gala.
The warm days and cool nights of the mountain and valley regions offer perfect growing conditions. Apple harvest spans from September through November. Virginia and Maryland apples are popular for a fresh fruit crunch and used in products such as applesauce, apple cider and apple butter.
