Spending a few hours picking in one of Long Island's many U-pick apple orchards will earn you a bounty of delicious apples in many varieties. Of course, there are a few rules: Most important, be sure to call in advance to see if the varieties you want to pick are ripe. If you want to bring a stroller or your own container for picking, call ahead or check the orchard's website to be sure it's allowed.

Although most orchards clearly mark which varieties are ripe, if you're not sure, ask.

And, while you may love your doggy, orchards are no place for your four-legged friends. Here's a list of orchards on Long Island that offer U-pick apples. -- Sylvia King-Cohen
