(1930, Indiana, USA) TURLEY WINESAP is an open pollinated seedling of Winesap, found in
Hortoculturist Joe A. Burton's orchard in Lawrence County, Indiana, in
1900. Burton (1841-1925), who married Louisa Turley (m. 1870)
developed the Turley Winesap, naming it after his son Turley Burton
(b. 1874). He planted as many as 8,000 trees from seeds before
arriving at the Turley Winesap. Medium to large in size, and round in
shape, the skin is a dull red, covering most of the surface of the
fruit, and the greenish-cream flesh is firm, juicy and subacid. The
tree is a triploid and grows vigorously with strong scaffold branches.
Since Turley is a triploid, it will not pollinate other cultivars.
Planting should be limited. Turley Winesap resembles Stayman Winesap,
but it is more crack resistant, and is considered of more delicate
flavor than the Stayman. It is good for cooking or baking with
fair-to-good dessert quality. The fruit keeps well in cold storage. As
an apple variety, the Turley Winesap was of significant economic
value, especially in the early part of the 20th century because of its
ability to withstand long transport to market by railcar. It stores
well and ripens in early October
Twenty Ounce Pippin

Tydeman's Late Orange
(1930, United Kingdom) A cross made by H. Tydeman between Worcester Pearmain and McIntosh. Makes an excellent pie.
