Did you miss the first year of First Kiss, the new University of Minnesota apple? A cross between a Honeycrisp and an apple from the University of Arkansas, the fruit delivers a well-loved crunch, lively flavor, and is sold out at most locations.

Mark your calendars for next year, because many orchards around the state got bushels from their trees. Here’s a handful of nearby spots to check out next orchard season:

• Apple Ridge Orchard – Mazeppa

• Big Woods Orchard – Winona

• Fireside Orchard & Gardens, Inc. – Northfield

• Hoch’s Orchard & Gardens – LaCrescent

• Sogn Valley Orchards –Dennison

• Wescott Orchard – Elgin
