Perceiving Apples

It’s hard to find a Mainer who doesn’t appreciate—or love—apples, but have you ever tried a Briggs Auburn, Winthrop Greening, or Nutting Bumpus? These apples, and many more, originated in Maine and continue to play an important role in each of Maine's sixteen counties. Apples are at the center of Maine's agricultural history.
