BAREROOT APPLE TREES FOR SPRING 2024 SHIPPING
The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.
I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Unknown parentage, 1st reference in 1400s France though some Court Pendu apples date back to Roman Empire
After surviving another grueling gladiator fight at the Coliseum, Lucius places his trident on the ground. His trainer approaches and raises an ugly apple to the tired warrior: "Nourish yourself with a Court Pendu."
Lucius bites into the apple and immediately forgets the fierce pain of his arrow wound - Court Pendu's overwhelming amount of sugar and sour demands his undivided attention.
I also find that Court Pendu apples demand my undivided attention. Eating them is like sampling the most delicious kind of time-capsule: You want sugar? Here's a ton of it. You want sour? Here's a hell of a lot. You want some aromatics thrown in? Why the hell not life's short.
Though intense, Court Pendu's flavor is impressively balanced. Though lacking the crispness of modern apples, Court Pendus are still adequately juicy, downright delicious, and capable of storing until April in the refridgerator or walk-in cooler.
Harvest: Late September/Early October
