New Yorker readers: do you remember an article about an "apple man", who had extensive knowledge of heirloom varieties, and could recommend what type of apple would be best suited for different locales?

I remember the article discussing how, throughout New England and the Northwest, there are a lot of old, abandoned fruit trees, growing varieties of apples unlike anything in the super market. It was probably published withing the last six years.
