    We'll likely not see these in western North America.

    It's rarely economical to ship apples across country (as foodstuffs), and cultivars for the east tend to stay in the east (and vice versa) with respect to growing.

    Can I just add to Daniel's last comment about not being economical to move from one part of the country to another. I think that is the right way to produce and shop for more locally grown foodstuffs. Helps local farmers and is environmentally friendly re less lorries producing yet more pollution. Just my opinion !!!
