The Rediscovery Of The Colorado Orange Apple

"As the decade comes to a close we can now report that in fact you can mix apples and oranges well kind of in the western. United States Apple. Well an thr- apologists are excited about the rediscovery of an apple variety that was believed to be extinct. It's called the Colorado Orange Apple Jud Shannon Meyer of the Montezuma Orchard Restoration Project in South Western Colorado. Helped track down the Orange Apple. We asked him what makes it so special so the Colorado oranges a mix of sweet and tart being a winter apple. The flavor opens up over time so winner apples like the Colorado orange. You wouldn't even think of starting to eat until Christmas. You'd go through all your summer apples all your fall apples. You'd have these in the root cellar. And then starting Christmas. You'd start to pull these out and month by month. The flavor would open up a little bit of the suite would go a little bit of the. Tang might but they were still going to be very flavorful. They have some of the most complex flavors of any apples. You'll ever have. They said culinary have some of the most complex flavors you'll ever have anything. The Colorado Orange was popular in the late eighteen hundreds but around the nineteen forties. It started to disappear the biggest thing it had going against. It was a yellowish wish. Orangish glow apple at a time when America was going into monoculture where shiny red apples were considered the only apples worth buying. It wasn't because it was bad quality or didn't grow. Well it lost out like so many of the thousands and thousands of apple varieties that have gone extinct. It lost out because it wasn't the Shiny Red Apple Shanta Shanta Myer says locals around Canyon City Colorado cherished the Orange Apple. They knew it was a really high quality apple winner Apple. Good Keeping Apple in in Canyon. City of the memory of it was kept alive for a long time in the old timers. Like Oh yeah. I used to have a tree at died but we kept thinking there was still going to be one around we. We felt like we could still find one and so he and his wife. ADDIE started combing the state two years ago. We were in Canyon City in this orchard in December. And this person Mr Diana said. Hey I've got a tree also and he took us to a tree my wife. Addie and I looked at it and Lo and behold on the ground underneath the tree and the duff there were. These orange blushed apples apples and then on the tree. There were some of the apple still hanging and it had that really good sub acid flavorful. Taste that you'd expect from a winner apple so yeah it was a it was a a big moment for us. But the Shannon Myers have been careful and taking their time. They did cutting edge. DNA testing and compared their find to some archival wax apple full replicas at Colorado State University. They wanted to make sure they'd found the actual orange apple of memory because it's considered extinct. There's probably never in absolute but we've got his close to an absolute as we can between this newest new DNA technology the historical purvey of the orchard itself in and the waxed apple to compare it to. That's an extraordinary amount of information that most people would never be able to have to compare anything and so in a couple of years once the a young trees get going. Keep Your Eyes Open in the produce section for something new and please restrain yourself from asking. Ju- Shanta Meyer about mixing apples apples and oranges. Yeah people when they hear of the Colorado Orange. They definitely wonder what we're talking about. That's for

"From the newsroom of the Washington Post I there is the mayor wrestling with the Washington Post or pick pick your brain on this is post reports I'm Martine powers it's Monday November remember fourth today auctioning guns in American schools Iran history with hostages and new physics physics for a potential cosmological crisis out of the blue I got an email from a parent in Kentucky Beth Reinhard is an investigative reporter for the Post saying I'm reaching out to you because I see your investigative reporters reporters written about the NRA and I'm really upset because I saw flyer for this fundraiser at my high school and I went on facebook and Sauve that they held this fundraiser at the high school last year and there were guns in the gym. What do you mean guns in the gym like guns on display guns John's on display in the actual firearms all over the bleachers that people could bid on and they're being raffled off to raise money four friends of an ray so it was like a gun auction at a school gun auction at school exactly with actual firearms and guns and what this parent whose name is Shannon Myers went on to say is she was particularly upset because just eighty miles away a a year ago there had been a mass shooting at a high school so because these parents had raised concerns before the event about there being guns in the gym they changed the setup this year so instead of having the actual weapons on display they had pictures of the weapons and people could pick them up later at a gun store so this was a fundraiser by a group called the Friends of the NRA this foundation it is different from the actual National Rifle Association so friends of NRA is the fundraising program under the auspices of the NRA NRA foundation that's the charitable arm of the NRA the foundation and the NRA are intricately connected though in that they share employees Louise they share office space? The foundation gives the NRA money to use for educational programs so there is a connection differences that got donations to the foundation are tax deductible and that money can only be used for education outreach and safety and not for political purposes so they're basically collecting money and using it to educate people young people about gun safety so the money from friends of NRA events which occur all over the country all the time half of that money goes to the foundation to use for national education programs and the other half goes into a pot for youth programs you know the Four H. Club Archery Club the trap Shooting Club the JR OTC club those kind of groups can apply for grants from the foundation and that's where the other half half of that money that's raised at friends of events goes and how much money are we talking about that is coming from this NRA nonprofit that is the being funneled out to two schools around the country millions of dollars not all of it goes to schools some go to you know your boy scout troop group or some other kind of community group so did you go to one of these fundraising events put on by friends of NRA so our colleague Nina Sativa and a freelancer freelancer in Oklahoma attended an event at a vocational school in Ida Bell Oklahoma similar in that they were raffling off weapons in Oklahoma however.
