“You’re a Nodhead!” We don’t know how these delicious heirloom apples got their goofy name but we love them anyway. Nodheads are a medium sized apple with a nice, freckled, blush and a smooth, sweet taste. They are not acidic at all and make nice cider and eating apples. The Nodhead is an old variety that was first described in 1859 but likely pre-dates that time. Nodheads likely originated in Hollis, New Hampshire were they were named for grower Samuel Jewett who was known for nodding his head when talking or walking around town. This is a fairly rare heirloom apple, grown only in New England.
