GEE WHIZ: The Apples of Grady Auvil
Guru, saint, sage and occasional pain in the appleseed. The story of a small-town farmer who saw the future in his fruit trees. This half-hour documentary undertakes an intimate exploration into the life and lessons of the late, legendary fruit grower as he took risks and persevered through every doubt to bring the Granny Smith apple, the Rainier cherry and the Fuji apple, among other new varieties, into the American mainstream.
