Gord,

Boughen Nurseries, Valley River, Manitoba  R0L 2B0 was where we
mail ordered our original MOSCOW PEAR APPLE 25 years ago, but
they haven't listed them in their catalog for quite a few years,
now.

I sold a couple MPA whips I'd grafted 9 or 10 years ago, locally.
I'll have to try tracking these down next time I have decent
rootstock seedlings for grafting. At least one of them was still
growing 4 or 5 years ago.

The late Fred Janson mentioned MPA as being one of his favorite
flavored apples in a letter to POMONA but I can't remember which
issue.

MPA is a small apple, though. Smaller than RESCUE or OSMAN.
Good for eating seeds and all. Very juicy and incredible flavor.
