Red apples growing on a tree

An Apple For Your Teacher ... and You!

What hasn’t ARS done for apples? From the ground up, we’ve invented disease-resistant rootstocks, environmentally friendly pest control methods, picker-friendly harvesting methods, better storage atmospheres, and natural preservatives to keep apple flesh from browning after cutting. ARS maintains an experimental orchard in Geneva, NY, devoted to bringing you even better apples for the future.
