I had some really good cider last week, made from Haralson apples, by a
friend who is getting into the commercial (hard) cider business.  I am
not sure if Haralsons would grow well in Arkansas, but they do well in
Wisconsin, and made a very nice single variety cider.

Does anyone have any resources on types of apples to grow for great 
cider making?  After reading several things I am pretty much confused, 
bitters, sharps, bittersharps, sweets, bittersweets........

I am trying to make some decisions on what to grow and now I don't 
know.  I just planted several Arkansas Blacks on a dwarving rootstock.  
Oh btw, I am in Arkansas.  Zone 7a-7b.
