 Empire:  Savor the richness of the Empires beautiful red 
                yellow skin. A cross of the McIntosh and Delicious 
                from the Geneva New York Research Station. Excellent 
                eating quality.
 
goldenRusset Golden Russet: Taste one of the most famous old American russet apples, remembered for its fine-grained, mellow yellow crisp flesh, bursting with sugary juices bound to stick to ones fingers like candy.

 Holiday:  The definitive dessert apple: The white, juicy  flesh is tart and 
          	 crisp, and explodes with each bite. A cross between the Jonathan 
		 and Macoun,  this fine flavored apple was recently introduced 
           	 by the Ohio Agriculture Experiment Station.
Calville Blanc D'hiver: The classic dessert apple of France is a delicacy still served in the finest Paris  restaurants. Its tender, spicy flesh with the fragrance of a delicate banana is packed with Vitamin C, exceeding all other eating apples and even the orange!

 Jonathan:  A favorite since introduced in 1826 from an orchard  in New 
		   York, first planted by Jonathan Harsbrouck. A Tree-Mendus 
		   original from our beginnings in 1926, old fashioned flavor 
		   harvested from September through October.
 
 Margil:  Classic and conical in shape, the Margil's firm yellowish flesh offers 
		a sugary, luscious aromatic flavor. Cultivated around 1750 and 
		remembered for its orange-red skin marked with dark red stripes,
               the Margil stores well and is excellent for blending  in ciders.
 
fallwater apple Fallwater/Tulpehocken:   Perfect for pies, sauces and apple butters, this variety's first recorded planting was in the 1800's growing in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.  When carefully harvested in the fall, its flesh is coarse, crisp and mildly sweet, and unassertive with age!

 


Esopus Spitzenberg: Spicy in character, the flesh is pale yellow,  firm crisp and tender to taste. Thomas Jefferson's favorite apple keeps well when  properly harvested during early October.
