Roger Yepsen knows his apples. He should, as he is a seasoned orchardist as well as a talented writer and illustrator. Here he presents fascinating facts about 90 mainstay and unusual varieties of apples grown in the United States, from Red Delicious and Granny Smith to Knobbed Russet and Hubbardston Nonesuch. Each entry identifies the variety’s harvest season, unique taste and best uses. Yepsen’s beautiful and distinctive watercolors make identification a snap.
This is not just a grower’s catalog. The author also includes a brief history of apples in North America, and recipes for pies, sauces, ciders, and more.
