Description

Farmers once grew thousands of varieties of apples. In modern times, most of these old heirloom varieties are extremely rare, and are now grown by only a small handful of farms.

We're taste-testing some fantastic heirloom apples—all grown right here in Michigan! Join us to discover a diverse array of sweet, sour, crisp, soft, gnarly, delicious, and straight-up weird apple varieties!

AADL staff will be on hand to explain a bit of the history of each selection.

Here are the heirloom apples that we will sample:

Pink Pearl

Karmijn de Sonnaville

Grimes Golden

Fearn’s Pippin

Maiden Blush

Roxbury Russet

Hudsons Golden Gem
