Davidson Sweeting

Discovered in 1994 by Dr. L.R. Littleton, this old apple tree was found, barely clinging to life, in the old Berrier Orchard near Cana, Virginia. Renee Berrier told Dr. Littleton that the original grafts were brought into Virginia from Davidson County, North Carolina in the 1800’s. The apple has been long prized by the Berrier family for making outstanding apple preserves. Fruit is medium in size, somewhat oblate, with light yellow skin with light red striping. Ripens in August.
