Catshead apple, also known as Pig's Snout, is the oldest apple variety that I have tasted. It is an English variety from 1629 and is is named for its unique shape, which resembles the profile of a cat's head. I find that it tastes like Banana Laffy Taffy. No wonder it has lasted this long throughout history!
This next apple is called Allen's Everlasting. And like its name, it can last in storage until June! While it is a russeting variety, it is not as nutty flavored as others. It has a mild citrus note to its flavor.
My Hocking Hills Orchard visits have been so much fun! These are the last two varieties of the ten we tasted. I plan to return in 2017 and bring you more interesting varieties in Liv Local Season 2.
