Elijah Washington, DC evanscraftcider@gmail.com "I stopped by a local orchard yesterday in an effort to secure some bins of "juice culls" this fall. They had two apples already out: Lodi and Summer Rambo. I picked up a peck of each to try. I was extremely impressed with Summer Rambo. A very well balanced apple that is tart and sweet, with a notable level of tannin. The ones I picked up were also different in appearance than is what is noted here, mine are almost completely green with only a hint of red throughout.

My great-grandmother (born 1890 in center Pa.) used to say this was the very best variety for applesauce; I planted a semi-dwarf S.R. about 10 years ago and it has borne good crops for the last 7-8 years. Large, attractive fruit also good for fresh eating

I purchased mine from Boyers (http://www.boyernurseries.com/bareroot.htm) this autumn. Looking forward when I can pick my own.

I have this veriety, Summer Rambo, in a 4way antique apple tree from Miller's Nursery in New York. This is the first year it has born fruit. It made excellent apple sauce.

Haven't tried this yet, but have scion wood and root stock for bench graft now. If you want to buy this cv. on dwarfing root stock, check the Where To Buy block. There is quite a list. A quick Google search brought up Boyer's and ACNursery, both offering Summer Rambo on M9 or similar.

i know the maker of the above comment is likely long since gone, but if somebody could point me in the direction of a dwarf summer rambo tree, I'd be very, very grateful. I loooove summer rambos, they make the best applesauce the world has ever tasted :)

My grandfather's family owned an orchard in Pike County Ky. with about 30 apple trees. The Summer Rambo was, by far, my favorite and the favorite of most of my family. The apples were huge and delicious. I now have a dwarf tree in my back yard, but it was only planted last year, so I haven't had any fruit from it. I had a semi-dwarf in my yard that bared every year, but the apples weren't as big as the others from Pike Co. Ky were. However, the tree uprooted and I had to have the tree removed.
