Notes
"In one case, bright yellow apples on an old tree in a neglected orchard in Shropshire were identified as Bringewood Pippin, first bred in the early 19th century. 
 
It is one of more than 60 lost varieties found near the Welsh border.
 
Local orchardist Tom Adams said: 'It was probably 100 years old and the only one of its kind left. It was a lost variety. Its DNA was tested and it was shown to be unique'."

"Carlos Manning is silent but smiling as he peels the pale yellow skin from an apple and slices off a bite of its butter-colored flesh.
 
"Not many people have ever tasted this one," he says, balancing the first slice on his paring knife.
 
Manning has eaten thousands of apples and grown thousands more in his lifetime, but this is special-- his first taste of an "old-timey" Butter variety rediscovered last summer in Greenbrier County."

"The late great Alexis Zambartes spent most of his life researching the Indigenous grapes of Cyprus and rediscovered some 20 species among which was the Morokanella — a grape that was very prominent prior to the Ottoman occupation in the 16th century, but declined to the heavy taxation imposed by them. The grape is slowly making headway though only three wineries produce it."

Cultivar name: Pecorino (grape)
Notes
"A terrific Italian variety that was nearly lost. In the era of cooperative driven winemaking when years were king Pecorino was ripped out and replaced with varietals like Trebbiano that produce tons of fruit with little effort. By the 1970s it was thought by many to be extinct but in the 80s a small wine producer in the Marche region found a few vines while searching for native grapes. In the 90s a handful of producers in Marche and Abruzzo had enough mature vines to produce small quantities of Pecorino based wines. The results were very favorable as Pecorino wines just flow over you with their distinctive floral tones and bright natural acidity. This is rapidly becoming one of favorite white grapes. In the 21st century Pecorino plantings have grown in Central Italy with the region of Lazio becoming a real player along with Marche and Abruzzo. Recently in 2011, the Marche region DOC of Offida was elevated to DOCG status (the top) for white wines made primarily with Pecorino or Passerina (this is another grape you should know). Pecorino means “little sheep” and it is said that the name was given as sheep flocking in vineyards favored the small green berries. Of course there is a cheese of the same name made also in Central Italy. Luckily the wine and the cheese pair beautifully."
