Description

Epic Cider. This Cherokee heirloom is delicious and would make epic cider. Rediscovered in Macon County, North Carolina in 2001. Legend goes a Cherokee Chief refused to sell his parcel of land on which his favorite apple tree grew, (the original “Junnaluska” mother tree,) until offered a huge amount (at the time) for the land by the US Government ($50.00).  A unique, large, greenish, orange-flecked, russeted, oblate fruit. Fine grained sub-acid fruit with very good eating quality and very good when used for cider production. Sounds similar in qualities to Ashmead€™s Kernal.
