From the founding of Jamestown to the time of Washington and Jefferson, every plantation owner made cider, drank cider, and bragged about his cider.
ZABERGAU REINETTE was raised at Hausen on the Zaber, Wurttember, Germany, from seed sown in 1885. The greenish-yellow skin is flushed orange with bright-red stripes, and heavily overlaid with a rough, yellow-brown russet. The yellowish flesh is fine-grained and firm with a subacid flavor. It is round to conical in shape, sometimes lopsided and medium in size. The flavor of this dessert apple is sometimes described as rich and nutty. Zabergau ripens in September.
