Blue Pearmain Apple Scionwood

These are out of New England in the late 1700s. It’s not just the powdery blue bloom that makes these the weirdest apple in the box, the flavor is different as well. It’s been described as tropical, especially when the acids fade after a month in storage. Use them now in pies, later for fresh eating or baked apples. The thick skin breaks down easily so the peel can be left on for sauce. Henry David Thoreau listed them as a favorite cultivated apple, being more like the wild ones. He loved to find them under leaves on the ground after a thaw and considered them best then. Apparently these keep well on the ground over winter but we don’t recommend that as a storage technique.
