Located 12 miles northwest of Bandera, this bucolic Hill Country town traded ranching for apple farming in the 1980s. Because Medina apples stay on the tree longer, their sugar content is higher than that of Washington state apples, a fact best appreciated while eating a scoop of Medina apple ice cream. The harvest season is from late June to early October, with the annual Medina Apple Festival occurring the last Saturday in July.
