Intro to Heirloom Apples – The Oregon Apple Story

November 3, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Sliding Scale

Most of us know only a few types of apples: Gala, Fuji, McIntosh, Granny Smith, Honey Crisp, Red Delicious. But there are thousands and thousands of varieties of apples in the world. Lucky for us, the Botner Apple Collection in Yoncalla, Oregon has the largest private collection of heirloom apple trees in the United States – nearly 4,000 of them. This class will connect you with some of the apples from the Temperate Orchard Conservancy, the caretaker of the Botner Collection. Take this class if you who enjoy new tastes, flavors, and stories related to things we eat; learn why we should care for these varieties and what we can do to ensure more unique, delicious varieties of apples are available.
