USDA-ARS Apple, Grape, and Tart Cherry Germplasm Collection Tour
--We are not able to host a public tour in 2021. Please check back for future dates.--
How many apple varieties exist? Why do we need so many? Come visit the USDA Apple, Grape, and Tart Cherry collections at Cornell AgriTech to find out! The USDA Plant Genetic Resources Unit maintains thousands of unique trees and vines for conservation and research. On Saturday, September 17, 2022 we will host our annual tour at the McCarthy Farm, 2865 County Road 6 (Preemption Road), Geneva, NY, 14456 (across from St. Mary’s Cemetery). Learn more about the value of crop diversity and enjoy a walking tour of the collections from 9:00 to 11:00 AM. Please arrive on time. No reservation needed.
