Description

Early-ripening varieties of heirloom apples are a delight of the season. Terry Dorman, owner and manager of Whitman Brook Orchard, leads this tour sampling some of the classic late-summer fruits, including Yellow Transparent and Duchess. The fresh eating crabapple, Centennial, introduced by University of Minnesota in 1957, is a special August treat. Dorman shares some history of certain apples, as well as describing the characteristics and uses for a number of the 100+ varieties grown at Whitman Brook. The walk also offers a fascinating close-up look at the reclamation and restoration of a 100-year-old abandoned hillside orchard.
