S9 E6: Can You Grow Apples in the Arctic?
Show Notes

Today I'm talking with Bob Osborne, columnist on CBC radio,  a Canadian farmer with more than 40 years of experience with all things apples, and the author of a brand new book, Hardy Apples.

Bob and I chat about how to grow healthy apples (even in cold climates), talk about the Renaissance of apples, and discuss why there are thousands of different apples out there but only the standard five options available in the grocery store.

And we may wind up gushing a little over all things apple crisp and apple cider.
