Ye olde apple trees
STAUNTON, Va. (AP) - April 29, 2013 (WPVI) -- It's the type of apple William Shakespeare might have eaten.
Virginia environmental studies professor Jon Cawley is planting rare apple trees.
One is a bardsey apple, with roots that go back about 1,000 years to Elizabethan England.
The Roanoke College prof tells the News Leader he hopes to create a genetic bank to help preserve the trees for another thousand years.
