    Would like to comment on this particular apple. It is in fact from “Hog” Island which is now known as “Centre” Island located in Oyster Bay ( Long Island) NY. The two families ( Smith & Ludlam) who first settled on the Island farmed and raised livestock there for over 150 years.

    Do you have any saplings for sale?
