The Weston Antique Apples has focused on smaller quantities of a larger variety of rare apples. This is just a fantastic, small, specialty apple orchard; they have a truly amazing selection of heirloom apples. Two of our favorites are the Strawberry Chenango, which was named for Chenango Valley in New York. That was about 1890-something, maybe early 1900s. It has the flavor and fragrance of roses. It's very difficult to pick this apple. We have to use gloves because the skin is so tender. It's excellent for apple sauce, as well. A lot of people use those in place of flowers on tables to give fragrance to a room."and the Pink Pearl which was introduced in 1944 by the California plant breeder. Rich flavored with bright-pink flesh, the skin is cream and pale-green with a light crimson cheek. Pink Pearl is a wonderful table apple and also makes a beautiful pink applesauce. The orchard offers an amazing variety of the most hard to find apples for eating, cellaring and cooking.
