To my knowledge, the new owners of Fred's orchard are not really interested
in apples and are not caring for the orchard. I don't think visitors are

On the subject of Fred's orchard, I would be interested to know if we could
reconstitute the main part of Fred's collection from those of us that got
wood from him. As far as I know, his orchard was maybe the only canadian
source for many hard-to-find apple varieties. He sent me in 1994 the list
of the varieties he had - there are at least 50 names in there that I have
never seen anywhere else.
For my part, I would be happy to share with the NAFEX community the (too
few) varieties I got from Fred and are not common in Canada. These are:
King of the Pippins (Reine de reinettes), Croncels (Transparente de),
Katja, Chenango Strawberry, Rubinette, Glowing Heart (this is a red fleshed
apple bred by Fred), Pink Princess (also bred by Fred and formely called
Pink Lady), Ashmead Kernel, Geneva Red and Wayne.
There are a few others I got from him, but these never got going at my
place, possibly because of lack of cold hardiness.

Hello all
Does anyone know if the orchard of the late Fred Jansen is operating & open
to the public?
If open can you tell me the name/phone number/address of the new owner?
Thank you
