Lets do the time warp again - ode to the apples

Check out this wonderful article regarding preservation of older variates of apples.

A stupendous idea

Technical stuff is found here if you want to order a variety, or find more about some. I wouldn't mind getting a Hetlina variety as they would appear to be very high in anti oxidants, seemingly about 10 times more than your standard variety.

It is exciting to think that maybe in 15 years time fruit will be appearing on the market based upon the nutrient level, instead of the fruit breed now for looking and smelling good for long storage times.
