Timeline: Historic Apple Collection
by Livi Lou - posted 03/12/18

There are so many historic and interesting varieties from Hocking Hills Orchard, which grows over 1,000 apple varieties.  I love that we have such a historic collection here in Ohio.  Check out this visual timeline and choose the varieties that interest you the most.  You can then check out the corresponding video on my YouTube Channel to see more.  Make sure to visit Hocking Hills Orchard to see the variety up close!  I'll be back to the Orchard for Season 3 this Fall (2018).
