Apple Variety Testing at Highmoor Farm
Highmoor Farm is UMaine College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture’s fruit and vegetable research facility in Monmouth. Our goal is to conduct applied research for the fruit and vegetable farmers of Maine and provide educational resources for Maine agriculture to remain competitive.
At Highmoor Farm researchers routinely evaluate apple, berry, and vegetable varieties for important horticultural traits and for disease resistance. Some of the better apple varieties are shown here with the parentage listed in parentheses. If parentage is unknown, it is listed as a chance seedling.
