Moscow Apples

In his autobiography, Moscow pioneer Charles J. Munson writes of “thousands of acres” of planted fruit trees. In Latah County alone there were 22,739 apple trees in 1890. “Apples, pears, prunes, and cherries,” Munson wrote, “had a ready sale and were shipped in carload quantities, taking premiums at all fairs and apple shows.”
