Truly an essential resource for anyone interested in learning more about America’s national fruit.
It’s handy to have handy – as a quick reference when we encounter new and unknown apples, when eating in-hand or while cider sampling. What is this apples history, how was it named, where is it from, can I bake with it, what is it’s flavor profile? So many questions, and Mr. Burford has the answer to 192 varieties.
Just flip through the pages to learn about the vast diversity of apples still available, if we only seek them out.
