The Dickinson Sweeting is the new apple in town!And the winner has been chosen! Dickinson Sweeting is the pick for the Emily Dickinson Museum's newly-named apple variety. The tally was 143 for Dickinson Sweeting, 140 for Sweet Emily Dickinson, and 109 for Amherst Sweet.

The Dickinson Sweeting is a seedling descendant of a Tolman Sweet, an old New England variety. Since it's grown from seed, it will have different characteristics than its parent tree. Our thanks to orchardist Francis Martin, who nursed the tree back to health this past year, and to all of you who helped us name our tree!
