ALBANY - Soon, tulips won't be the only attraction drawing people to Washington Park.

Nine Pin Ciderworks hosted a planting party in the park on Sunday. Eight varieties of apple trees that are unique to New York state were planted.

Samascott Orchards, based in Kinderhook, provided the trees and will help Nine Pin Cider maintain them. They hope to use the urban orchard project as an educational tool for the community.

It'll take some time before people finally get to see some apples. A standard size apple tree starts bearing fruit eight to ten years after it's planted. A dwarf tree starts bearing fruit in three to five years.
