Hi Laurie,
    I know how you feel, years ago writing an article on apples I realized 
that the ones that made my grandma's pies so fabulous were possibly the only 
ones of their kind.
Somewhere in the research it talked about the trees cross pollinating and 
such to create a unique variety of apple that might only grow in that area.   
 I felt lucky to get those terrific pies as a child and I can still taste 
that one of a kind tart/sweet filling.
