Title: The Vanderpool Apple
Author: L.L. McGraw
The Vanderpool apple is a longkeeping, red, medium to large variety with fine flavor. It is hardy, resistant to disease, and very prolific. Specimens were shown in good condition at the Oregon State Fair (year isn't known), one year after it was picked.
The Oregon Nursery Company states in its 1913 catalog that the Vanderpool Red originated in Benton County, Oregon. This same nursery shows a full color plate of this variety in its 1903 color plate book.
In the Proceedings of the Oregon State Horticultural Society for November, Dec., 1910, it is noted that first prize for the best box of 'Vanderpool Red' apples went to H.O. Rumbaugh, of Albany, Oregon.
