Orchardist Les Price grows an incredibly diverse crop in this "backyard region" of Seattle—some 150 varieties on just four acres. Price attributes his success to equal parts curiosity (he once worked as an experimental researcher at the University of Washington's School of Agriculture) and generosity (he and his wife, Talea, insist that visitors sample unusual apple varieties—which they often then develop a taste for).
What to Pick: Among the best heirlooms are the Sunrise—a cross between McIntosh and Golden Delicious—and the Calville Blanc d'Hiver, a 17th-century French variety that's perfect for tarte aux pommes.
Most Unusual Offering: Guided ethnobotany tours from Price or his wife, which look at the history of apples, their uses in various cultures, and some of the qualities of the world's most prized apples.
Bells & Whistles: A PYO pumpkin patch; hayrides; ducks, geese, and chickens.
