Owner's comments

Huge apples. This is the first year it's produced in any quantity, but we've only had it for 4 years. Really good flavor. We were told it was a "King Apple" grown by Thomas Jefferson when we bought it; after researching it (since we got fruit from it last year), it seems most likely that it's a King of Tomkins County.
