We are really excited about being able to offer this Arkansas heirloom (ca. 1860) as it’s listed as “Extinct” in Calhoun’s Old Southern Apples. Why do we think we have the original ‘Tull’? Because Arkansas apple explorer extraordinaire Scott Gothard found it growing in the Tull family yard in Grant County, AR, and the family said, “Yep, that’s it.” They’ve been keeping it alive this whole time! Yellow, firm, juicy flesh in a greenish red skin. We’re a little concerned about rust since we saw some on Tull leaves in the nursery, but this was the worst rust year I’ve ever seen. On the other hand, Calhoun describes it as “free from rot” and the Tull family and Scott Gothard confirm this, which makes this apple of inestimable value to Southern growers.
