Arkansas Black is a variety that has been known since 1870. They are very disease resistant and make excellent food for deer and game, but are not the type of apple you would pick right off the tree and eat. They reach peak flavor and texture after a long period of storage and are sweet and rich for pie baking and cider making.
They grow fast at a rate of nearly 24 inches per year. Once mature, they will be on average 15 to 20 feet with a slightly less spread. Flowering exquisite showy white flowers just before the leaves arrive in spring. The leaves are simple, glossy green that alternate on the twig growing up to 3 inches long. They are thick with slight midrib curves folding the edges inward and fine teeth on the margin. Although tolerate to other types, production may be less and are sensitive to salt and drought.

The Concord Grape was first developed in 1849 in Concord, Massachusetts by Emphraim Wales Bull, being introduced to market in 1854. Dr.Thomas Bramwell Welch developed the first Concord Grape juice in 1869. Grapes have the best survivability if planted during the dormant season. Concord grapes are cold hardy and easy to grow. They start producing fruit at about 3 to 4 years and the same plants can continue to produce for well over 50 years. These grapes are self-fertile. The vines do get heavy from the fruit so staking them or letting them grow on a fence or trellises works well.

Many landscapes are made all the more beautiful with the addition of this Redbud, which is distinguishable by divided, multiple trunks and a graceful, rounded crown. It generally has a short, often twisted trunk and spreading branches.
