Fall Happy Hour with David Bedford

Just in time for fall and our beloved apple season, David Bedford, apple breeder at the University of Minnesota took the stage in November 2016.

About the speaker
David Bedford has been an apple breeder and research scientist at the University of Minnesota for 38 years. He has been involved in the development and introduction of multiple fruit varieties including strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, pears, plums and apples. As an apple breeder, David has had his hands in the creation and introduction of five apple varieties from the University of Minnesota: Honeycrisp, Zestar!, SnowSweet, SweeTango and Frostbite. His job sometimes requires him to taste up to 500 apples per day in order to evaluate the 15,000 to 20,000 apple trees generated by the University of Minnesota apple breeding program.

David will be talking about the process it takes to create the perfect apple, from breeding to naming. In celebration of Capsule's role in naming the latest apple variety (formerly referred to as the MN-55 — join us to find out the new name), we will be hosting a happy hour rather than our typical breakfast. Apple-inspired fall treats and drinks will be served.
