Portland Nursery 21st Apple tasting

The large red apple floating over Portland Nursery announced that it is having the annual apple tasting. On Friday I sampled apples, pears and Asian pears. I had a yummy time tasting the over 70 varieties of fruit. Most of the fruit sampled are available for purchase at 89 cents a pound. I bought Jonagold, Mutsu, Cox orange pippin, Spitzenberg apples and Red Comice pears. Lots of other fun activities are going on there this weekend and next.
October 10, 11, 12 and 17, 18, and 19, 2008. 10 am to 5 pm Free event.
