Heritage Apples

Recommended Posts

David Karp has an article about heritage apples in Wednesday's NY Times. He notes that many "new" apples are derived from artisanal, orchard grown, not mass produced varieties. One apple now found in NYC markets, the Ribston Pippin, has a three century heritage dating to the British Isles. Ribston is notoriously inefficient as 120 trees produced just 700 pounds of fruit, perhaps 10% of what conventional apples would yield.


Karp writes with an elegance and flair about apples. He's written for Gourmet in the past, on similar subjects, with similar grace.
