Sample text

In 1758 New York City sent the first shipment of its own commercially grown apples to Europe. Benjamin Franklin, a diplomat in London at the time, had asked for his favourite, the Newtown Pippin. The first commercial orchard in the colonies, now located in Queens, a borough of New York City, had raised the variety in about 1730 from a chance seedling, known as a pippin. It became New York’s most famous apple, and was in demand in Europe and America throughout the next century. 4 But as New York growers followed the trend towards producing uniformly red, cloyingly sweet apples, the tart, green-tinged Newtown Pippin disappeared from grocery shops and farm stalls alike.

More importantly, clones, like the ones in science-fiction tales, have a fatal flaw: they are more susceptible than seedlings to disease and debilitation. As the use of dwarfing rootstocks increased in the nineteenth century, they proved to be particularly vulnerable to viruses that spread pathogens into the grafted trees. A cure was discovered in the early twentieth century at the East Malling Research Station in England. The treatment, a sophisticated form of tissue culture, led to hardier rootstocks.

Core Principles Before they sprout, apple seeds like to be on their own, free of the swaddling flesh of the intact fruit. The man celebrated for planting apple orchards on the American frontier, John Chapman (1774–1845), better known as Johnny Appleseed, may have learned this through practical experience. Poets, songwriters and novelists sang his praises, yet not many were specific about his methods. An exception was a popular children’s poem of the late nineteenth century, ‘Appleseed John’ by a popular writer of the day, Lydia Maria Child.
