The Illinois State Historical Society has been taking applications from various locations around the state for a number of apple trees that have been grown from one of the original trees that the famed Johnny Appleseed planted. The trees have since been delivered to the ISHS, and the organization is now opening the trees up to anybody who would like to buy one.

 

Gwen Podeschi with the ISHS says there are still a good number of trees available for adoption.

 

 

Podeschi says that the fruit these trees are expected to produce will be a good apple for cooking.

 

 

Podeschi appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
