I have searched around online but I have been unable to locate a list of fruits, vegetables or plants grown at The Monticello.

Surely there has to be a list somewhere?

If anyone can help me out I would sincerely appreciate it.

Thanks!

If you can get in touch with Tom Burford, otherwise known as "Professor Apple" he can likely tell you which apple varieties Jefferson planted there. I know "Esopus Spitzenburg" was his favorite so likely he had some of those trees as well as Albemarle Pippins.
