Two new apple varieties, Snapdragon and Ruby Frost, are being harvested and sold for the first time at Dressel Farms in New Paltz. The apple varieties were developed by Cornell University’s Agricultural Research Department and then grown and tested by several New York apple-growers. Although the first trees were planted in 2011, they had to get to a level of maturity before they could be harvested, which began this past month with the Snapdragons and approximately three weeks ago with the Ruby Frosts, much to the pleasure of the growers and their farmstand customers.
