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 16, 2023, we will host our annual tour at the McCarthy Farm, 2865 County Road 6 (Pre Emption Road), Geneva, NY, 14456 (across from St. Mary’s Cemetery).
