ONE OF ROXBURY’S GREATEST TREASURES IS… AN APPLE!

The Roxbury Russet is the oldest known apple cultivar, or breed, found in the United States. First harvested by English settlers in Roxbury in the seventeenth century, it was used primarily to make cider to drink. When stored in a cool, dry place, these apples can last all winter - perfect for colonial New Englanders, who sought ways to preserve their foods before refrigeration.

At 6pm, orchardist and pomologist John Bunker will give an hour-long lecture on the history of the Roxbury Russet, and answer attendee questions on the breed. This portion of the event is sponsored by Roxbury Historical Society, and will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry (UUUM), just across the street. We hope to see you there!

The event is free to all attendees, and will take place rain or shine.

Check out the Roxbury Russet Apple Festival earlier in the day!
