WARWICK -

Apple-picking season has begun in Orange County.

Alan Ochs, owner of Ochs Orchard in Warwick, says he primes his apple trees in preparation of apple-picking season. Ochs says he has golden delicious, Crispin, Jonagold and SnapDragon apples.

The family-owned farm also has pumpkins, tomatoes, peppers and a variety of other vegetables ripe for the picking.

Ochs says it's best to come on weekdays to avoid the weekend crowds.

The apple-picking season at Ochs Orchard runs until the end of October.

Warwick will also have its annual Applefest this weekend.
