I got this tune from David Surette’s CD "The Green Mandolin." It’s the middle tune in a set of three hornpipes.
I think this might be better classed as a barndance and not a hornpipe, but I could be wrong. You could confirm this by asking ceolachan. Only the person who submitted the tune can edit the tune details and ABC.

A rather more complex version is well-known in French-Canadian music circles and was recorded in 1995 by Laureat Berube. Almost a cross between a smooth hornpipe and a reel.
The Apple Hornpipe and the French-Canadian Apple Hornpipe
First, I offer an overdue Thank You to Dow for correcting the tune. I actually didn’t understand two years ago what was wrong — it was my first attempt and I had never really been never into the dots. It was a silly mistake. Thanks again, Dow.
As for the difference between Bérubé’s and the tune as written here (Dow’s corrected version, that is), I listened to Lauréat Bérubé’s Apple Hornpipe and other than one or two added notes, there’s not really any significant difference as far as I can hear. Why do you say it is "more complex," fiddlypb? Do you just mean that there’s a couple of notes difference? If not, can you transcribe it to make it more clear what you mean?
