Heirloom Apples Article

It always does my heart good to see fruit articles in the popular press:

Beyond the McIntosh (The Atlantic Monthly)

The story made me anxious to try a 'Black Oxford'. Actually, it made me anxious to actually own property again so that I can actually plant some trees.

While I think restricting yourself to cultivars discovered only in Maine seems overly restrictive to me, there's a lot to be said for local varieties. Particularly when dealing with varieties that were discovered as chance seedlings--if they didn't thrive in their original location, they'd have never been named.
