Wow, congratulations on successfully grafting and growing trees from root-stock, the art of the true scientific pomologist!!! Of course, now we have to make some reference to 1919's or other firearms, since this is a firearms dedicated forum. Your apple varieties sound great and we'd probably all like to stop by for a taste next time we're through that area. I grew up ('til about 35) with apples in the back yard, and the bird and I just finished two Cameo's, "discovered" in the 1980's.
The historic Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman) planted, but did not graft, trees over much of Indiana, Ohio and the Midwest in general, most of which were non-edible varieties and good only for cider, applejack, alcohol, and establishing property rights of the orchards he planted. (He owned over 1,200 acres eventually.) He never carried a firearm or weapon of any kind, and was so animal friendly he could have been the ideal progenitor of PETA; he 'adopted broken-down horses and 'placed' them. and he had only generous settlers and Indians as companions.
By forgoing grafting, Johnny created the conditions for apple trees to adapt and thrive in their new world home locations; the apples thus becoming indigenous and adapting to their different locations. The apple could be an apt symbol of the diversity and complexity of our melting pot, as there are almost as many apples (about 1,700 varieties by early nineteenth century) as there are people, each type with its own unique history and personality, he apple is to America as the potato is to Ireland or the olive is to Italy. "The apple...," as Virginia pomologist James Fitz proudly proclaimed in 1872, "... is our democratic fruit," but Thomas Jefferson grew primarily only four types.
