It's officially apple season, y'all! We've received our first batches of summer apples from our growers and Daniel is out doing some select foraging of local crab apples.
Most people don't realize where their apples come from, which is not surprising. It seems like Fuji, Red Delicious, Gala... they were always in the grocery store but their story is more complex. First, we will give you a bit of a background on how apples change and propagate, then we will talk about the Esopus Spitzenburg Family Tree.
