In the 1830’s in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, a seedling apple tree grew beside the smokehouse of William Gibbons. Perhaps it sprang from a core that some one had tossed there while they tended the fire. Who knows? What we do know is that Smokehouse has stood the test of time due to its great flavour. Traditionally it is picked a little early and used for baking. But if it’s allowed to ripen fully on the tree, some people have described its balanced flavour “like drinking fresh-pressed cider!” Begins bearing early and crops annually.
