Apples on the Radio

October 5, 2009

For more information on local apples and heirloom varieties give the podcast of last week’s WBUR Radio Boston show a listen. Host David Boeri delves into some of the folk lore and love that people have for their special apples. We can’t argue with that!

“Fall has arrived in New England, and so to have the bus loads of students, and van loads of families, heading into the hills to pick apples. The annual apple picking trip has become a tradition for many in the region, and a connection to our history as a place where apples are grown.

But today, apple orchards are under increasing pressure, because of real estate development and larger factory farms from outside New England, like the Pacific Northwest.”
