Re: [new_distillers] Kingston Black apples
- Hello Group, I received this in the mail bag today from a nursery that sells
many types of apple trees:
Kingston Black should do well for you in the Willamette valley (Oregon). I
know of a
small cidery in northern California that grows the fruit, and they report
similar production to ours. There is a tendancy to biennial bearing if you
don't hand thin.
We custom graft many of our varieties, which is a two year process to get a
sellable fruit tree. When we have unexpected sales fluctuations it means
that some years we don't have a variety in sellable sizes; this year it was
Kingston Black and Fiesta.
This year, all of our apples on semi-dwarf rootstocks, M-26, M-7, & M-106,
are $19.95. Full dwarf, M-27 and M-9, are $21.95. We do not currently have
a secure website for online ordering. You can call, or fax your order to
us. We also have a free, paper hardcopy of our catalog that we can send to
you if you give us your address.
