I used to dislike apples when I was a kid, but then I tried heirloom apples from Scott Farm Orchard, and I realized it wasn’t that I didn’t like apples, I just wasn’t eating the right ones! Have you ever tasted an Ashmead’s Kernel, a Pitmaston Pineapple, a Knobbed Russet? How about a Reine des Reinettes? With their strange names and crowd-pleasing flavors, these historic gems (heirloom means they’re over 100 years old) are a world away from the mass market fruits trucked in from Washington State.
Stop by the Brattleboro Farmer’s Market to sample some cider and apples with Lizi! There is an amazing variety of apples grown at farms in our community — some with fabulously romantic, others with wonky and weird names. Cider will be available too.
