I normally bring some "Miss Jessamine" apples to the show but I cannot make it this year.  I was also going to bring some "hey jack," apples - see this thread: http://forums.homeorchardsocie.....rab-apple/

Is there anyone in Clark County going to the show that could bring these?  The HOS folks already have "Miss Jessamine" in their system but not "hey jack,".

I could meet you or drop them off in Camas or Hazel Dell or anywhere in between.

Hi folks!

Sadly, been off the forum throughout the summer, but planning to be there on Sunday (the 20th) with my wife.  Looking forward to sampling both 'Miss Jessamine' and 'Hey Jack!' apples.

Thanks davem and jafar!

I took the liberty of tasting the Hey Jack!.  I don't remember the discussion from last year, but it tasted like sweetened cranberry or lingonberry.  There was some bitterness, it was tart and juicy, a bit astringent, and tasted like it had a lot of sugar too.

They might be good for canning or pickling I imagine, as well as eating if you don't mind a little bitter and astringent to go with the flavor and sugar.

I picked them Monday evening which is a couple of weeks earlier than last year.  I don't recall any bitterness but otherwise your description is exactly what I remember. There are still quite a few apples on the tree, I'm curious how long they will stay.

Also regarding the name - here's how it was written on the restaurant sign. Note that it ends with a comma.  It is like a salutation.
