WV Mountaineer Jacks Cider Orchard



Blackford Farm WV Wildling Apple Bunch



Blackfords Bitter, nicknamed Crabbydaddy, named for our Father and thoroughbred breeder who founded the farm, Dad was niether crabby nor bitter. Great to add to other apples for cider due to its high tannins, tartness and high sugar levels, would be classified as a bitter sharp cider apple. A tough tree, the mother tree is growing on the western side of a pasture against the edge of a woodlot and so only gets morning sunshine and it lives in a frost pocket and still has fruit every year when other wildlings fail to set fruit. Iodine test Oct 23, 2016. Blackford Bitter compared to Indian Summer crabapples for size. We always have volunteers on picking day. Scions available for free, we want to see how this does in many different growing areas.
