Apple season is here! Did you know there used to be thousands of kinds of apples grown in the United States!? While many are lost, you can still find some of these varieties grown today!
In Virginia, most apple production is located in the western counties stretching from Wi******er (Frederick Co.) in the north, to the tier of counties along the North Carolina border. Much acreage is devoted to processing production, especially in the northern counties; elsewhere in the state, fresh production predominates. The five leading varieties are Red Delicious, York, Golden Delicious, Rome and Fuji.
