Jubilee

Does anyone know where one could obtain a Jubilee tree? I tried a Jubilee recently from Washinton State University's orchard and it was fantastic!

Re: Spanish hard-cider varieties

Has anyone ever tried to order any of these apples? I think it would be great to try to establish these in the U.S. for cider.

Re: Haralson

I picked a box of these at a U-Pick orchard north of Idaho Falls, Idaho about 2 years ago. It is the only time I have seen these, and they are very good. I thought they were very tasty, and seems like they would make great pie and cider. Based on that, I planted a young Haralson in my new orchard. I...

Re: Karminj

This is the best apple I have ever tasted. The best word to describe it is: superlative!

Re: Winesap!

These are truly great apples. There are much better varieties for eating, but have found them excellent for pies, pink sauce (leave the skins on!) and add a great deal of flavor in cider. And, they seem to last well into spring when left in the unheated garage or fridge. I have planted two Winesap t...

Re: Opal

I don't know that it is patented, but may be trademarked. I have scoured the internet, and cannot find any trees for sale anywhere. They would definitely be worth getting. If you can find them in a store, try some!

Opal

I have just tried some Opal apples that are supposedly only grown on an orchard here in Washington state. Looks like a Golden Delicious, but doesn't taste like one! Very juicy, and a great combination of sweet and tart. Supposed to be a Golden Delcious X Topaz. Only being sold in the local market fo...

I acquired a Suntan from Trees of Antiquity in the spring of 2012. You might try them.

Goodland

If you haven't tried a Goodland, I would highly recommend it. Extremely good apple!
