For many years Dave Wilson Nursery has conducted formal fruit tastings, compiling over 43,000 individual variety ratings while evaluating over 1,700 fruit samples. The primary objectives of the tastings and the report are to 1) provide retail nursery personnel and home orchardists with knowledge of the best tree-ripe home orchard fruit, and 2) afford DWN a systematic means of evaluating new varieties.
