Posted on Wednesday, January 12th, 2011 at 9:01 am by admin

We’re glad to announce the release of Old Southern Apples, Revised and Expanded Edition, by Creighton Lee Calhoun.

A book that became an instant classic when it first appeared in 1995, Old Southern Apples is an indispensable reference for fruit lovers everywhere, especially those who live in the southern United States. Out of print for several years, this newly revised and expanded edition now features descriptions of some 1,800 apple varieties that either originated in the South or were widely grown there before 1928.

In the videos below, Creighton discusses how he started reviving heritage varieties in his orchard in Pittsboro, North Carolina, and even conducts a mini-apple tasting for the lucky interviewer.

Old Southern Apples is available now.
