History Notes

Lubsk Queen Apples are from Russia. They were introduced into America and Canada sometime between 1879 and 1885 by Professor J. L. Budd of Iowa State Agricultural College and Charles Gibb of Quebec. They were looking for Russian apple varieties that would do well through the winters in Quebec and in the US prairies.


They were shown at the Columbia Exposition in 1893.

Bon mots

"My situation is a solemn one. Life is offered to me on condition of eating beefsteaks. But death is better than cannibalism. My will contains directions for my funeral, which will be followed not by mourning coaches, but by oxen, sheep, flocks of poultry, and a small traveling aquarium of live fish, all wearing white scarfs in honor of the man who perished rather than eat his fellow creatures."

-- George Bernard Shaw (English playwright. 26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950)
