APPLE NOTES FROM PRAIRIE CANADA

February 9, 1994

The Canadian prairie provinces have been the source of many of the most successful apple varieties in Alaska (for example, Norland, Parkland, Rescue, and Westland). Apple Notes, edited by Roger Vick, is a quarterly publication by the University of Alberta Devonian Botanic Garden dedicated to apple growing in the cold, windy, dry Canadian prairie. It costs $8 for four issues and is well worth the money.
