I have been reading lots about apples lately and have found that a lot of older and tasty varieties have been enjoyed by famous people from history!
The Spitzenburg was Thomas Jefferson’s favorite.
Black Gilliflower (Sheepnose) was Ben Franklin’s favorite
Blacktwig was Andrew Jackon’s favorite
Newtown Pippin was George Washington’s favorite
I am sure there are plenty more historical or famous people that have a known favorite. So does anyone else know more varieties that would be interesting to know that they were a favorite of someone famous or historical?
Some of this information was found out from an apple list I received from @derekamills and I am very grateful for the information
