- DescriptionThe oldest American apple variety. Our Jamaican apple-picking crew says this apple has a nectar-like flavor that is similar to guava. It has a very high sugar content though you may not notice it due to the acids. Cider made from this apple is like syrup, it's so thick.
The Scott Farm has been in active cultivation since 1791. The farm's present orchardist, Ezekiel Goodband, has had a lifelong passion for apples. His search for old varieties has taken him to abandoned orchards throughout New England and as far as Kazakhstan, the birthplace of apples. The orchard now contains 90 heirloom and unusual apple varieties. (from Scott Farm Orchard)
