[nafex] Fruit feedback requested

	I just received the Southmeadow Fruit Garden (lots of heirlooms)
catalog & have been tempted to purchase a few varieties.  Before taking the
plunge, I'd appreciate feedback from any folks with experience with these
varieties.  I'm at 4000' in the southern Appalachians, zone 6 with cool and
often wet summers.  Soil is naturally acidic - lots of my lawn is grass
growing through moss.

Apple varieties are Ashmead's Kernel and Hidden Rose

I'm also considering getting the Nottingham medlar, but have some qualms
about this one.  Can anyone explain the difference between "bletting",
allowing the fruit to turn brown & soften, and "rotting".

thanks in advance.
