Heritage Apples

In the course of the past century we have lost much of our rich heritage of orchard fruits. But with taste once again triumphing over shelf-life and sparking a renewed interest in local varieties, people around the world are rediscovering the delights of that most delicious and adaptable fruit: the apple. This book features apple varieties from the Herefordshire Pomona that are still cultivated today. The Pomona--an exquisitely illustrated book of apples and pears--was published at the height of the Victorian era by a small rural naturalists' club. Its beautiful illustrations and authoritative text are treasured by book collectors and apple experts alike. From the Blenheim Orange and Worcester Pearmain to the less fêted yet scrumptious Ribston Pippin, Margil, and Pitmaston Pine Apple, Heritage Apples is illustrated with the Pomona's stunning paintings and tells the intriguing stories behind each variety, how they acquired their names, and their merits for eating, cooking, or making cider. Also featuring practical advice on how to choose and grow your own trees, this is the perfect book for apple-lovers and growers alike.
