Full Answer

Visitors to PickYourOwn.org can submit listings of apple orchards, while Orange Pippin allows orchard owners to apply to have their businesses listed on the website. Both websites have listings across the United States and in other countries. On both websites, the listings of apple orchards can be sorted by state, but Orange Pippin also gives users the option to search by name.

These websites are also a valuable source of information on what kinds of fruits, including varieties of apples, are available throughout the growing season. Both websites also provide typical orchard hours, driving directions and even websites for individual orchards.

Orange Pippin has extra information about apples, including a directory of apple varieties that includes their histories and defining characteristics. This can be a great research tool to decide which orchard to visit, as a specific orchard may specialize in a particular variety of apple, or not carry a variety a visitor might be seeking.
