Had some strawberry apples many years ago. Had a wonderful strawberry aroma and made fabulous applesauce. Was not a great keeper though, so our local supermarket only offered them for a couple of years. I'm hoping that this tree produces the same apples.

Heritage fruit
My husband and I are planting a lot of "heritage" trees and perennials around the farm. The Chenango Strawberry is special because it was developed just down the road and it celebrates the history of our region. The sweet tang makes a great sauce and the kids love eating them so it made sense to have our own.
