Thanks Lauri Whit!

Here is a link worth checking out.  It's actually from the Twisted Tree Farm article linked by Lauri.

"This catalog contains a very diverse list of accessions including wild species, interspecific hybrids,
heirloom cultivars, other rare cultivars and commonly available commercial cultivars."  USDA

USDA/Apple, Grape and Cherry

Howdy, everyone, from beautiful Ontario. This news article from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is not exactly on topic, but I thought you all would enjoy it, as it is part of apple history in North America. Hallowe'en is coming up, and 60 years ago McIntosh apples were a typical Hallowe'en treat handed out to us kids, every year. The original McIntosh Apple farm is up for sale, and yes, there are trees on the property descended from the original McIntosh tree.

Don't know if the following video link will show up here as clickable but if not you can copy and paste it to your browser.
