 Gravensteins Comprehensive notes and photos of apple varieties; excerpts from S.A. Beach, Apples of New York, information about the grower, and historical notes

“Why do we need so many kinds of apples? Because there are so many folks. A person has a right to gratify his legitimate tastes. If he wants twenty or forty kinds of apples for his personal use, running from Early Harvest to Roxbury Russet, he should be accorded the privilege. Some place should be provided where he may obtain trees or scions. There is merit in variety itself. It provides more points of contact with life, and leads away from uniformity and monotony”

-Liberty Hyde Bailey
from The Apple Tree (1922)
