From the founding of Jamestown to the time of Washington and Jefferson, every plantation owner made cider, drank cider, and bragged about his cider.
BOTETOURT GREEN is the name given to a tree discovered by Peter Letcher growing along I-64 in Botetourt County, Virginia. He presumes it to be a chance seedling. It is a good-sized green apple with a tart-sweet flavor. Has yet to fruit for Vintage Virginia Apples. May have promise as a dessert apple.
