Ettersburg Apples

I've honestly never heard of Greenmantle Nursery, but I'm really impressed with the descriptions of Albert Etter's apples, as well as their crab apple page. It's good to see Etter getting a bit of his due. I'd like to find some one selling his strawberries as well.

Anybody ever seen 'Alaska'? I never have...I'm just curious if it really is as truly white as the picture on that page shows.

I have ordered from Greenmantle Nursery for about 20 years and have never had a complaint.

For me, at the two orchards I grow the Alaska variety here in Southeast Ohio, it is not white, off white or even cream but is light yellow and very good tasting.

I was just struck by the color in the photo, but of course that's years old and not from an era when color reproduction of photos was at it's most accurate.

Are you growing any of the other Etter apples?

Here are the ones I can remember off hand that I have ordered from Greenmantle that I know they said were developed by Albert Etter:
Etter's Gold
Pink Pearmain*
Pink Pearl*
Surprise*
Thornberry*
Rubaiyat*
Grendadine*
Wickson

The ones marked with an * are red fleshed varieties and only Pink Pearl has that particular trait on a regular basis. Now I also grow Winter Red Flesh, Almata and Clifford which are always dark red fleshed but they were developed by Dr Nels Hansen if I remember right.

Plus I have Grenadine and Thornberry from them which they found

Say P. S., would you ever want to start some fruits in our yard? Or just offer advice. Faith can tell you that we have plenty of space. We are open to your sugestons.

I've got a number of trees coming from Greenmantle this Spring that will be going into the orchard, specifically the following:

Emneth Early
Keswick Codlin
Lyman's Large Summer
Wickson**
Harrison Cider
Opalescent
Laxton's Epicure
Tydeman's Late Orange
Hudson's Golden Gem
Atalanta Gold **T
Eden Crab **T
Muscat de Venus **T
Crimson Gold**

**Etter Apples
T=Trademarked Cultivar

I'd considered trying additional trademarked Etter apples (a few of the red-fleshed ones specifically), but Greenmantle won't sell more than two trees of any trademarked cultivar to anyone and also requires a non-propagation agreement. This pretty much puts the damper on these particular apples being grown for anything more than a novelty.

Greenmantle does have a wonderful collection of hard to find apples, many of which aren't even available through the huge apple collection that's part of Geneva/Cornell in NY. They do charge a pretty penny for them though.

I live in Germany. Greenmantle still doesn't have an emailaddress. Does anyone of you know if there's any chance for me to get Grenadine and Rubaiyat here in Germany? Or should I just write them a letter and ask for some twigs, come february?
