Apple Varieties

Honeycrisp.  Apples, Macoun Apples, McIntosh Apples, Gala Apples, Cortland Apples, Empire Apples, Fuji Apples, Northern Spy Apples, Fortune Apples, Red Delicious Apples are our varieties in order of their popularity.  But that is the tip of the orchard when it comes to Apples.   The call we get over and over about apples is Honeycrisp apples.  The apple that seems to be mankind’s favorite apple, Honeycrisp.

THE “APPLE” HISTORY

The apple emerged as a celebrated fruit  at the beginning of the peopling of Earth. Whether you start with Adam and Eve or the anthropological data on Stone Age man in Europe, the apple was there.  Greek and Roman mythology refer to apples as symbols of love and beauty. When  the Romans conquered England about the first century B.C., they brought apple  cultivation with them. William Tell gained fame by shooting an apple off his  son's head at the order of invaders of Switzerland.

The Pilgrims discovered crabapples had preceded them to America, but the fruit was not very edible. The Massachusetts Bay Colony requested seeds and cuttings from England, which were brought over on  later voyages of the Mayflower. Other Europeans brought apple stock to Virginia and the Southwest, and a Massachusetts man, John Chapman, became famous for  planting trees throughout Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois (his name became "Johnny Apple seed"). Seeds from an apple given to a London sea Capitan in 1820 are sometimes said to be the origin of the State of Washington apple crop (now the  largest in the U.S.).

As the country was settled, nearly every farm grew some apples. Although some were very good, most of the early varieties  would be considered poor today. Of nearly 8000 varieties known around the world,  about 100 are grown in commercial quantity in the U.S., with the top 10  comprising over 90% of the crop.

Our modern orchards combine the rich heritage of apple growing with research and field trials to grow an annual U.S. crop exceeding 220,000,000 bushels. New varieties are still being discovered and  cultivated, with the best eventually becoming "household words" like McIntosh Apple,  Delicious apples, Empire apples, Rome apples, Spartan apples, Cortland apples, Granny Smith apples, etc.. Recent arrivals  include Honeycrisp apples, Gala apples, Fortune apples, Fuji apples, Braeburn apples, Liberty apples, and more than a few "throwbacks" to antique apple varieties now enjoying a resurgence.

It can certainly be said that an apple combines the best attributes of "something old and something new".
