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.

Product Details

Unknown Limbertwig Seedling, Grundy or Warren County Tennessee, 1800s

Victoria Limbertwig apples remind me of a passage from Tom Buford's Apples of North America:

"March of April, just as the last of these apples were coming out of winter storage, was when my father often remarked that we should have just started to eat them: the long storage time imbued the remaining ones with an extraordinary taste that lingered on the tongue."

Burford here references the Newton Pippin, though the same holds true for Victoria Limbertwig. Though 'Vickys' have an enjoyable, sweet aromatic flavor when sampled from the tree in late October, there are other admittedly more-flavorful apples to eat this time of year.

As such, I consider Victoria Limbertwigs a 'homestead' apple - suitable for those who wish to store a portion of their harvest for winter consumption.

Victoria Limbertwig trees thrive in the low-maintenance orchard due to their annual production, high vigor, and scab resistance.
