At the Alaska State Fair in Palmer, First Premium for apples went to Casey Jones of Palmer for a small, non-russetted yellow apple labelled “Golden Delicious”. This was probably misnamed, since Golden Delicious would probably not even survive in south-central Alaska, let alone ripen prise-winning fruit. Second prize went to Phyllis Kircher for Norland; Honorable mention went to Walter Williams for Northland? This Northland looked identical to one exhibited by Jay Dearborn.
Although these were the official prizewinners, the best looking apples were part of a nice display by Jay Dearborn of Yellow Jay, Rescue, Chinese Golden Early, Vista Bella, Parkland, Quality Crab, Geneva Early, Summerred, Northland, Canada Red, Norda, and Westland.
