Old Southern Apples

I was in Pittsboro last night at a book signing with Lee Calhoun for his new Revised and Expanded Edition of Old Southern Apples. This is a comprehensive history and description of varieties for collectors, growers, and fruit enthusiasts. The new book features descriptions of some 1,800 apple varieties that either originated in the South or were widely grown there before 1928.
Lee signed books, did some readings from the book and then answered lots of questions and signed some more books.
