Looking for an individual to identify the 20 some variety of apple trees in my small orchard. I saved an apple from each tree this year. Willing to pay for individual's services. I live in Elmira, but am willing to take the apples to the individual.

Expert Response

Hi there,

Apple ID is tough but some Master Gardener programs may have a local expert that can identify apple varieties. I would try contacting the Lane County Master Gardeners at 541-344-0265 (Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. and 2-5 p.m.) to see if they have a Master Gardener who can do this. If not, I would ask them if retired horticulture agent, Ross Penhallegon, may be able to help you out with this. He has a lot of fruit tree experience but he is only working part-time due to retirement and may not be offering certain services anymore.

Good luck!
