Black Twig, an old Tennessee variety with a dark burgundy skin, was Andrew Jackson’s favorite apple. It was introduced about 1830 as a seedling on the farm of Major Rankin Toole near Fayetteville, Tennessee. It became one of the popular dessert varieties in the 19th and early 20th century in Central Virginia orchards. It is not ripe until October, has a very crisp flesh that is both sweet and tart, and it gets better the longer you keep it–if cared for properly–almost until Spring.
Smokehouse originated in the 1830s by William Gibbons’ Smokehouse in Lancaster Pennsylvania (hence the name).
