From the founding of Jamestown to the time of Washington and Jefferson, every plantation owner made cider, drank cider, and bragged about his cider.
INGRID MARIE came from the island of Fyn, Denmark, in 1910, and is thought to be a seedling of Cox's Orange Pippin. There are a number of sports available. The skin of this dessert fruit is greenish-yellow and almost completely covered with a dark, crimson flush. There is only a faint trace of stripes and some small russet patches. The lenticels are very large russet and white dots. Environmental conditions can cause cracking around the eye of the fruit. The white flesh is fine-grained, crisp and juicy. Ingrid Marie ripens in September.
