Campfield – New Jersey, USA pre-1817

Campfield has been a cider variety from the very beginning. ¬†Although first recorded in William Coxe’s 1817 book, “A View of the Cultivation of Fruit Trees”, it is believed that this variety may have originated in the Newark, New Jersey area in the early 1800’s. ¬†In Coxe’s book, he described the Campfield as a small red apple with greenish-yellow dots that was “strong and highly flavored”. Historically, the Campfield has been blended with equal proportions of Harrison apples to create a high quality hard cider.
