Sweetser’s has the oldest Rolfe tree in the state of Maine (and quite probably- the world) which can be seen near the barn. The tree is over 100 years old and is related to the original trees planted by Jeremiah Rolfe who fought in the Revolutionary War. In 1820 Jeremiah Rolfe gave twelve of his Blue Pearmain apple trees to the Reverend Thomas Macomber from Guilford, Maine. The twelfth of these trees turned out to be a new variety and they named it after its creator, Jeremiah Rolfe. Rolfe apples mature in late September and are known for their nice white flesh and crisp texture.
