>Have any of you heard of the Cavil Crymskiy apple from the Former Soviet
Union? I made a typo in a scionwood request from the Geneva Germplasm
repository so now I have the wood and I am trying to decide if it is worth
grafting. I didn't see anything on the sites I usually look for variety
info, including Brogdale. There is certainly some possibility that it may
be transliterated several different ways. If anyone knows anything please
let me know.
In Apples of N.Y., vol.2, p.22, there is a Blushed Calville that has as a
synonym "Calville Krasmui", origin Russia - could it be the same?
Personnally, I have some doubts... The name sounds rather like a Calville
type of apple that would be from Crimea on Black Sea.
