      I received scion wood from the USDA for Foxwhelp, grafted this year. I am hoping it is the true, old cider Foxwhelp.

      As best we have been able to determine the apple labelled "Foxwhelp" in North America is *NOT* at all the same as the British one. The comment about this apple being good eating from the gentleman in Washington is consistent with this. We have been unable to find any Foxwhelp apples in N.A. which resemble the original British one.
