Post Apple ID Please
On the land that is now the Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge (near Washougal, WA) there is an apple tree that is probably at least 80 years old. A couple of years ago I took some to the ID team at the Fruit Show. After some time they decided that they were stumped.

I collected some apples from the tree about a month ago, and tonight I took some photos, see below (here are all the photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/refugeste ... 943601311/ )

The flesh is very smooth. The flavor is somewhat tart, somewhat bland, only slightly sweet.

This tree is near a long gone farm house. I don't believe there was ever an orchard at this particular spot. Here is the location: https://www.google.com/maps/@45.5709988 ... a=!3m1!1e3

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Dave

Dave, Viron here, I sent a link to this to two members of our Apple ID Team. Apparently Shaun (following) looked your post over. …here’s his response:

Thanks for the heads-up. Glad to hear from you.
Joanie and I are up to our eyeballs in apples again, got a refrigerator full and several boxes over at her place, worked 8-10 hours on them Saturday.

The ones on the forum there are tough, medium round red striped apples are a huge bunch. Might be Oliver, Walbridge, Rambo, Grosh etc. Will try to respond pretty soon. Shaun.


wow, apparently they’ve so many apples left to ID from the AAFS they took them home :shock: That’s them! Anyway, though it sounds as though Shaun may get back here … in case he doesn’t, I want you to at least see his first guesses. And having seen a lot of apples myself… it’s not my strong side :roll:
