Apples in Virginia

Season 1 Episode 105 | 26m 46s

No fruit helped build America more than the apple. Recently, there’s been a movement to return to some of the original varieties that apple connoisseurs say taste better than what is typically found in grocery stores today. Discover the story of the apple by visiting with a horticultural historian from Monticello and a foodways interpreter who brings the stories of enslaved persons to life.
