Fine fruit is the most perfect union of the useful and the beautiful that the earth knows.
SPICE OF OLD VIRGINIA is something of a mystery. Tom Burford believes it may be Olde Towne, which dates back to the 17th century. There are a number of Spice apples grown throughout the southern states in the 19th century. Henry Morton of Tennesee had this cultivar, and noted that it makes wonderful apple butter, richly aromatic and flavorful. Vintage Virginia Apples looks forward to fruiting and testing this apple.
