February 12, 2011. Pittsboro, NC.. Mr. Calhoun  in his young tree orchard. He has espaliered most of his collection, planting the trees quite close together, trained to wires, and keeping them pruned and at a 45 degree angle, which makes them flower and fruit more efficiently. .Lee Calhoun, 77, has spent over 30 years collecting old southern apple varieties and planting them in his orchard in hopes of sustaining the breeds.
