Profile

The orchard was planted by the Horticulture Department in 1980 under the direction of Dr. Kim Black and continues to be maintained by faculty and students. The orchard was planted to test apple varieties and to research apple rootstocks that would be hardy in the Upper Snake River Valley. The orchard museum contains a large and diverse collection of trees with rare genetics and unusual characteristics, some of which date back to the 1600's. Overall this collection of 160 fruit trees is unique in the United States, especially in the Inter-mountain States where it is the only one of its kind. In the quiet reverie of this well cultivated history, the orchard continues to be an outdoor learning center where horticulture techniques are taught and practiced.
