Good to hear the Hooples at Century Farm was good this year.
I’m pretty close so I always attend the open house. Sometimes I attend twice! Lots of different varieties to try and I always learn new stuff.
One year I ran into Lee Calhoon and Tom Burford.
Hundreds of different varieties to taste, but some were picked in September or early October and held in storage for a good while so it can be hard to tell what the apple tastes like during its prime.
I was very interested in seeing and tasting Red Royal Limbertwig, but it was past its prime and I was disappointed.
