During our orientation get-together at Fairfield Mountains, we were told that apples were ripe and that they were selling for $9 a bushel at Edneyville. Before making the trip to Edneyville, we stopped at a roadside stand near Lake Lure and bought a couple of small sacks of apples. The man at the stand said the apples were from Edneyville. Upon sampling our apples and discovering that they were some of the most delicious we had ever had, we were all ready to drive to Edneyville to buy a bushel of apples.
Edneyville is a small town on the road to Hendersonville. Many of the fruit stands in Edneyville were decorated for Halloween and had big containers of pumpkins for sale. Many also offered the option of picking your own apples. We decided to buy apples at the stand and not pick them. Our North Carolina apples were some of the very best we have tasted. We enjoyed them during the rest of our stay at Fairfield Mountains and brought a large number of them back with us to eat at home.
