Hello Group,
This is the same message that earlier, sent from my office computer... It 
seems my first one (which was sent from my home computer) didn't reach some 
of you for some reasons to investigate. Personnally, I got my first message 
fine when I opened my office computer.

I have read there is also a White Astrakan, but it is not known very much. 
I have the red one. It is a rather good very early apple. Better tasting 
than the Yellow Transparent in my opinion and about the same season.

Does anyone know anything about this apple?  I am reading an old book about 
New Hampshire and the author is singing its praises.  I noticed in the 
latest issue of Pomona that a Red Astrakan is mentioned. Are there 
different varieties?  Any info appreciated, thanks.  Lisa  Snow covered 12
