From the founding of Jamestown to the time of Washington and Jefferson, every plantation owner made cider, drank cider, and bragged about his cider.
YELLOW SIBERIAN CRAB is sometimes called Golden Beauty. It is similar to Red Siberian except in the color and size of the fruit, it being rather large and of a clear, golden-yellow color. Season for ripening is September. Tree is medium size or below, a good grower, upright, becoming roundish and somewhat drooping, very hardy and healthy, except that under certain circumstances, it suffers from blight. It comes into bearing rather young and is a reliable cropper, yielding heavy to very heavy crops annually or nearly annually. It is grown principally for home use and makes a delicious jelly, but sometimes, a portion of the fruit is disposed of in local markets. This description is from Beach again. Our trees are young and have not fruited.
