Re: [nafex] cider varieties in virginia`

Ken, Honey Sweet Cider is an odd-time variety that was used as a blending 
apple to sweeten cider.  It was apparently lost for many years and was
rediscovered by Dr. E. Fisher at an abandoned homesite in the Shenandoah
Valley. A lot of nurseries dealing in antique varietes have it listed as
either Honey Sweet or Honey Cider.  Happy Holidays ....Jerry Appleseed.
