Also known as Mammoth Black Twig, this is Arkansas’ oldest heirloom, dating from 1833. Distinct from Arkansas Black, but shares some of Black’s keeping ability. The fruit is medium to large, red stripes over green, crisp and winey. Resistant to all four major diseases and late enough to escape summer rots. Arkansaw has a relatively high tannin content so is suddenly much sought after for cider makers!
