About the 2019 Apple Tree List Since we do some of our own grafting of a large number of different heirloom apples we never have a large supply of any one kind which allows us to offer a wide diversity of apples that include disease resistant, heirloom, eating, dessert, cooking, juice and both heirloom and some of the newest hard cider types. It takes time to produce these special trees. For example; trees grafted in the spring of 2017 will typically not be ready to sell until 2019. Some folks with small city lots are interested in the dwarf kinds that grow to about 6-8 feet tall while those with more space may prefer the semi-dwarfs that can grow to 15 feet. Dwarf trees need a support stake because the produce full size apples and lots of them. Some of the smaller semi-dwarf trees may need support and some of the larger semi-dwarf root stocks will only need support while getting established. We can help you with any questions you have. Some root stocks also produce better on loamy soils and some better on sandy soils. 

Desert Apples These make the best eating apples and are used fresh and also in salads. Blue Pearmain (An heirloom from England known for its long storing qualities and winter hardiness) , Novaspy (disease resistant hybrid of Northern Spy and Golden Delicious, sweet with good storage qualities), Bonkers (NY35 an un-official release from the disease resistant apple program in Geneva, NY but people are crazy for it. Very large dark red apples are very appealing for market stands.) Rubinette (An intense honeyed pear-drop sweet Swiss variety with the famous Cox Orange Pippin as a parent with just enough tartness to give it great appeal.) 

Hard Cider Varieties are used for juice or hard cider but do not make good eating apples. Brown's Apple, Campfield, Harrison Cider, Kronebusch, Dabinet, Redfield and Red Byrd Bitter.

Dual Purpose Varieties These make great dessert apples for fresh eating and can also be used in juice and hard cider blends as well as being good culinary or cooking apples. Many of these are rare heirloom varieties that have survived for centuries in some cases. Arkansas Black, Baldwin, Black Oxford, Golden Russet a must have russet apple for fresh eating and both fresh and hard cider. Newtown Pippin from 1795 American Colonies it is the main ingredient of an award wining fresh cider producer. Reinette Zabergau a deliciously flavored russet apple from Germany in 1885. Spitzenberg Esopus the famous apple of Thomas Jefferson 1790. Ashmead's Kernal an English russet variety from 1740. Roxbury Russet a top notch American russet apple from 1635! Wickson is a delicious sweet large crab apple perfect for snacking that also makes an excellent addition to fresh and hard ciders. It is our number one recommended pollinator for our other apple trees because it is so versatile. Saint Edmund's Russet is the earliest ripening russet and excellent flavored it is from England 1875. 

A note about russet apples: These apples have a rough brown skin that while some people find less than attractive conceal some of the richest and most flavorful apples ever grown. As you can see we are big fans of this group at Hidden Springs and have several more varieties that will be ready later this summer or in 2019 if the supplies last.
