DID YOU KNOW?
Back in 2010 Cedar Heights planted an experimental 1 acre block of new trees. We are exploring innovative high density growing practices as well as apple varieties that will be good for making hard and sweet cider. Some of the new trees are traditional European varieties such as Kingston Black, Yarlington Mills, Michelin and Dabinett. However, we are also very interested in rediscovering wonderful regional varieties that have been overlooked in recent time: Classic New England Baldwin;Northern Spy; Winesap; Newton Pippin; and of course the Russets; Roxbury Russet; St Edmunds Russet; and Golden Russet.
New, delicious, very productive and disease resistant varieties are being developed by university agricultural centers in the US,and we are very excited by the prospect of Goldrush and Liberty in the roster. Though small in size we love the crabs for their super sweet, super sour and super flavor: Harrison, Wickson and Virginia. We hope to have fruit from these new plantings in 2013. The success of this block will help guide the selection of new trees for both table and cider fruit as we grow production at Cedar heights Orchard.
