WORCESTER, ENGLAND - OCTOBER 08: An apple picker gathers Gala apples in an orchard at Stocks Farm in Suckley, near Worcester, on October 8, 2013 in Worcestershire, England. According to English Apples and Pears, the fruit growers' trade association, the unusual combination of a late spring and hot summer has made this year's English crop the latest for a generation. However, a delay of more than three weeks and the earlier high summer day temperatures has enabled the fruit to mature well, which promises great textures and taste.

It’s a New England tradition that keeps going and going and going: apple picking. It helps to transition from summer to fall and leads to Thanksgiving and then the holidays!

Apple picking starts in mid August and runs through early November, although the pickings get slimmer and slimmer the later you go. This weekend should still yield a plentiful apple picking experience!

Fresh hot cider, crisp juicy apples, and sugary cider doughnuts are all some of the best parts of fall in New England.
